Corinne Lepage, French Minister of the Environment (1995-1997), addressed at the 2nd Day of The Free Iran World Summit on July 12, 2021.
I wish to support your journey to bless your people with the power to choose, the freedom to choose leaders, destiny, job, religion, partners, etc. I see in Iran that activists and freedom fighters are persecuted.
The presidency of Raisi only makes the situation worse. We must be alarmed by this situation and the crimes committed by this person.
I would like to say to the Iranian people that I am beside you and wish that western states are more courageous when they talk about Iran.
We want to share values that need to be defended. Authoritarian regimes that deny rights cannot be supported.
