Giulio Terzi, former Italian foreign minister
Thanks a lot. I like to start by expressing my deepest respect and admiration to the president of NCRI, Madame Maryam Rajavi and to yourself, Mr. Hashemi.
I believe that it is quite clear, as we have already mentioned up to now that next Friday, 27 November, is the starting date for the trial of the Iranian diplomat indicted of terrorism, Assadollah Assadi, and that these date, this incoming date, in next few days, represents finally a very welcome chance to hold the Iranian regime accountable for its misdeeds. We didn’t need the attempted terrorist attack in Villepinte to prove that the Iranian theocratic state is the number one terrorist state in the world, as we didn’t need another massacre on European soil, perpetrated by this criminal regime to prove the pattern of huge waves of blood soaking the Middle East and even Europe since Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini grabbed the power in Tehran 41 years ago.
We didn’t need another huge massacre in Villepinte to prove the regime atrocities, to prove its crimes against humanity, and even genocides like the 1988 massacre of 30,000 political prisoners and the other thousands of victims in Iranian jails, political prisoners, opponents, torture, murder, executed, and even the killing of Iranian expatriates in Europe, mentioned by Madame Rajavi in initial presentation. All the elements and the evidence is collected by the Belgian prosecutors.
Thanks to an outstanding coordination, finally, a really outstanding coordination between French, Belgian, German and those in security services are leading up to a historical trial against the terrorists who attempted on the lives of almost 40,000-50,000 persons and the ones of the NCRI leaders and Madame Maryam Rajavi in the 2018 bombing plotting Villepinte. Those kinds of foreign delegations and there were large Italian delegations as well, those are so far the delegations with underlines of dignitaries were attending the gathering that would have been targeted by the attack planned by the Iranian intelligence and by the now very notorious Iranian terrorist diplomat, you Mr. Assadi.
There is an indication in certification of a ranking diplomat who was “serving” his country. “Serving” because we know that it was a terrorist service that he was serving his country in Vienna, is the architect of the plot and that would sound as a case of a deviate behavior of a bad egg, which is among other positive elements is that really the black point and the bad the bad guy in the Iranian diplomatic service, but that was not the case.
Actually, he was a source of normality, his presence as a terrorist in the diplomatic ranks of this country. And it confirms that Iran is the number one terrorist state in the world as I’ve already said. It is unprecedented and that was already noted and underlined in the previous intervention. It is really unprecedented for a sovereign state as a member of the United Nations signal signatory part of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations. It is unprecedented to use his diplomatic apparatus, diplomatic immunities, and diplomatic offices in order to develop terrorist activities and to develop them so brazenly.
The case on himself reveals volumes about the name nature of the Iranian theocracy. We cannot wait any longer in increasing across the board in all possible sectors of diplomatic relations. We cannot wait any longer to implement a strategy of maximum pressure against this regime of associates. Tehran must understand that it will pay the heaviest of the prices.
The Iranian diplomats who do have the terrorists must be all of them indicted and prosecuted will never be the evidence of a terrorist plot exist, whenever it emerges, and they must be immediately expelled from our countries in case of threatening intelligence activities. And Iranian embassies, governmental offices in institutions directly or indirectly involved in those operations or connected with organizations such as now as IRGC, Hezbollah. I was mentioning Hezbollah. The risk that we have, the force by Hezbollah presence in Europe, all these offices, the Iranian offices, must be promptly closed.
European Union has a solution, for instance, to include senior Iranian intelligence personnel in the EU list of terrorists. It was important. Yes, months ago, but it was no doubt too late or too late. And the European Union still does not entirely see Iran is a fundamental threat against the citizens. And some of the opponents of the regime were assassinated in the past or where the assassination hit, at least, where European citizens and the European Union just didn’t react properly.
So, to conclude, there is no doubt that after the latest revelation by Reuters that Assadi threatened the Belgian judiciary, and after that, the EU did not react to these threats. Now, the European governments, European Parliaments, and all the friends and supporters that freedom of democracy have in the entire world should be very much louder, more clear, and speak up, and act against this intimidation and the intimidation that have been launched by diplomat terrorist and by the criminals who belong to a government, which has dispatched those terrorists to the European soil to kill European people. Thank you.
