02 July 2017-- During an important meeting of the Iranian opposition in Paris, the US Deputy State Secretary for Armament Matters, John Bolton, held a speech in front of the people gathered for the ceremony and said that the regime of Ayatolah will not be able celebrate its 40th anniversary in power, but will be brought down within 2019.
Albania was also present in this meeting, with a delegation led by Pandeli Majko.
This year’s meeting in Paris was called “Free Iran” by the organizers, held for the Iranian dissidents living in the West.
Dozens of thousands of people gather each year to express their support, attracting attention from Western media, since the meeting has the presence of noted personalities, such as Rudy Gulliani, Howard Dean, John Bolton, Newt Gingrich, Tom Ridge, etc.
The Iranian diaspora demands a change of regime, while western policies towards Iran have been softer for the past four decades, in order to guarantee economic benefits.
However, the Ayatollah’s are not affected by the economic relations, and their regime is still ruling the people.
In 1988, after the Iraq-Iran war, a religious decree issued by Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini appealed for execution of every supporter of MEK movement, an order which caused more than 30.000 political prisoners in Iran.
