Analysis by PMOI/MEK
Feb. 18, 2019 - The Iranian regime’s atrocious report card of supporting international terrorism and being the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism came to haunt the mullahs’ Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif during his visit to Germany for the Munich Security Conference on Sunday.
Reporters asked Zarif about European sanctions against Tehran over the mullahs’ terror campaign on their soil, especially through the course of 2018. Constantly dodging questions over the Iranian regime’s bombing and assassination plots across Europe during the past year, Zarif, as always, resorted to old lies to justify these heinous measures and signaled the source of Tehran’s main concerns.
“The United States is listening to the wrong folks… what is clear is that there are people in Europe who have been on Europe’s terrorism list up until 2012. What happened all of a sudden that they were withdrawn from the terrorism list?... In 1998, the U.S. put the MEK on the terrorism list and in 2012 they took them off the terrorism list,” he said while obviously losing his temper and control.
“[U.S. President Donald Trump’s lawyer] Rudy Giuliani spoke yesterday for the MEK. [U.S. National Security Advisor] John Bolton has spoken for the MEK. John Bolton is angry because he promised the MEK that he would celebrate in 2019 in Iran with them. They are still in Paris,” Zarif continued, once again indicating how the Iranian regime is utterly terrified of the growing role of the Iranian opposition People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK).
On the same day of the Munich Security Conference, members of the Iranian Diaspora and PMOI/MEK supporters rallied in Munich protesting the presence of Zarif as the top diplomat of the religious fascism ruling Iran and demanding his expulsion.
Zarif is a member of the regime’s Supreme National Security Council and involved in all decision-making processes to carry out terrorist attacks and assassinations abroad. This includes the bombing plot targeting the 2018 Iranian opposition rally in near Paris back in late June.
It has been crystal clear that the Iranian regime is the source of terrorism and warmongering in the Middle East and across the globe.
The protesters called on the international community to take into notice the eight demands raised by the Iranian opposition from the international community. Maryam Rajavi, President of the Iranian opposition coalition National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) raised these demands recently.
