NCRI- On April 14, 2017,  Senator John McCain (R-AZ), the Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, met in Tirana, Albania, with Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) and discussed the latest developments in Iran, the clerical regime’s nefarious meddling in the Middle East region and prospects for the future.

The notorious Ebrahim Raisi has publicly announced that he will stand as a candidate in the sham Presidential election.

In a letter addressed to the regime's Supreme Leader Khamenei on March 22, some 50 mullahs, members of the Assembly of Experts, requested his nomination. He had told other factions that he would run for office if he had Khamenei's approval.

At the same time, Rouhani told his cohorts that he had obtained Khamenei’s approval to run.

On Tuesday March 28th 2017, Struan Stevenson President of the European Iraqi Freedom Association (EIFA) made the following speech in The House of Commons of the United Kingdom, on the occasion of Nowruz, the Persian New Year.

First of all let me wish everyone a very happy Nowruz. And to my Iranian friends: Eideh Shoma Mobarak ! (Happy New Year)

New efforts by U.S. lawmakers to tighten sanctions against Iran's ballistic-missile program have earned praise from three former senior U.S. officials who support an exiled Iranian opposition group.

Former Under Secretary of State for Arms Control and International Security Robert Joseph, Obama administration State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley and former Marine Corps Commandant U.S. General James Conway welcomed last Thursday's announcements of new Iran sanctions legislation as they attended a Washington reception on Friday.

Iranian dissident group National Council of Resistance of Iran organized the event in honor of Nowruz, the Persian New Year. NCRI seeks to oust Iran's Islamist rulers and replace them with a democratic system of government.

The need for referring the atrocities of the clerical regime to UN Security Council

The leader of the Iranian resistance has sent a strong message to the new US administration: Cease relations with Iran until the country stops torture and executions.

Maryam Rajavi, the leader of the People's Mujahedin of Iran, spoke at a gathering in the Albanian capital Tirana to mark the Persian New Year, and took the opportunity to issue some demands to US President Donald Trump's administration.

Maryam Rajavi addressed her greeting at Nowruz celebration, the Iranian New Year, which was held at Tirana Albania with PMOI members and guests from Albania, France and United States:

Congratulations on Nowruz, the blossoming of spring and the beginning of the year 1396!
Greetings to each and every one of you freedom fighters who have established the Third Ashraf contrary to the wishes of the Velayat-e Faqih regime!

Senator Robert Torricelli spoke at the Grand Gathering of the Iranian Resistance and its supporters celebrating the Great Nowruz.

Senator Torricelli said in part that with Maryam Rajavi, Iranian people would have their freedom and the right to live a prosperous life.

The former U.S. Senator said: 'Everyone in Iran has a role… big or small, take a stand, be part of the free Iran, make your decision today to end the dictatorship, person by person, village by village, across Iran, take a stand now.'

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."

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.
