In addition, MEPs called on the European Union to fulfill its moral and political obligations in the face of human rights violations in Iran.

Milan Zver, MEP from Slovenia
We welcome Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of National Council of Resistance of Iran.
Our gathering the following statement from High Representative Josep Borrell on situation in Iran in the panelists’ session today, since last November, the most significant protests since 2009 against the Iranian regime began and rapidly spread to at least 100 cities throughout the country. Protesters have expressed marvelous economic complaints, but also calling for the structural reform of the political system and condemning current and former Iranian leaders.
I’ve been closely following the developments in Iran. Reports indicated Iranian security forces to refuse harmful force in arresting more than 7,000 people and killed hundreds of people in connection with the protests. Terrorist operations of Iranian security forces on European soil are also of great sum and needed to be stopped. I strongly condemned any acts of violence committed by Iranian regime against the Iranian people and I’m deeply concerned by reports of several fatalities.
Let me make this clear. The Islamic Republic must cease violence against its own people and stop any further terrorist plots abroad. I’m pleased to observe that the free random gathering brought in protesters in Iran have also started to show support for the Iranian opposition leader, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi and her 10 points plan for the future of Iran that caused the democracy, modern legal system, respect of human rights, and market economy.
Mrs. Rajavi, I, too, fully support your unfailing commitments to transform Iran into democratic and free society. As I have stated many times before, I believe you should need stricter policy to impose sanctions and demand from Iranian regime to respect human rights and stop execution of political policemen.
Democratic societies taught remain silent in the face of such human rights violations happening in Iran for the past four decades. It’s our legitimate duty to respond to the people of Iran who are continuing to call legitimated and peaceful protest against the oppressive and corrupt regime. Thank you for your attention.
