Iran, August 15, 2020— “An Arms Embargo against the religious fascism ruling Iran is indispensable to regional and global peace and security. The regime’s unimpeded purchase and sale of weapons will have no result other than terrorism, warmongering and export of fundamentalism,” Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, president-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), tweeted on Saturday.

 

 

While Iran’s economy continues to decline due to government mismanagement and the continuation of the coronavirus outbreak, the Iranian regime has not reduced its spending on terrorism and warmongering in the region.

“The Iranian people, with nearly 90,000 coronavirus fatalities, are, more than ever before, in need of allocating the astronomical budget for weapons, and nuclear and missile projects to their health and treatment,” Mrs. Rajavi said.

 

 

Mrs. Rajavi also reiterated that the Iranian people demand regime change and do not support this regime. In the past two years, a growing number of Iranians have been braving the odds and defying the regime’s violent suppression to vocally call for the ouster of the ruling mullahs. Iranian protesters have also made it clear in their slogans that they do not support the regime’s warmongering policies in the Middle East region.

“The familiar slogans chanted by people of Iran and directed at the mullahs and against any appeasement of the regime are: ‘Leave Syria alone, think of us,’ ‘Neither Gaza, nor Lebanon, my life only for Iran,’” Mrs. Rajavi said. “The regime’s leaders must face justice as the greatest perpetrators of terrorism in the world today as should their agents and mercenaries inside and outside Iran.”
