WASHINGTON, March 17, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --- Marking the Iranian New Year of 1396, bi-partisan senior members of the United States Senate joined the Nowruz gathering, sponsored by the Organization of Iranian American Communities (OIAC), calling for change in Iran.

While criticizing the Iranian regime's malign behavior, Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman, John McCain (R-AZ) said, "I think the only thing that the Iranian regime understands is, as Ronald Reagan called it, peace through strength.  But most of all, I hope that we can give the people who are now residing in that country the hope and belief and commitment to all of us that someday they will know freedom again."

NCRI - March 15th, 1993 marks the day when Mohammad Hossein Naghdi, a member of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), was assassinated in Italy by Iranian intelligence agents.

Naghdi was Iran’s former charge d’affaires in the Iranian embassy in Rome. However, he joined the Iranian Resistance in 1982 and became a member of the NCRI representative delegation in Italy. From 1983 onward he became the NCRI representative in Italy.

On the day of his murder two individuals on a motorcycle near Rome’s Alba Square approached Naghdi’s vehicle at 9:30 am and opened fire. Naghdi lost his life before he reached the hospital.
