On Tuesday, May 10, 2022, the Antwerp Court in Belgium announced the verdict of three accomplices of the Iranian regime’s terrorist-diplomat Asadollah Assadi. An international conference held in this regard by the National Council of Resistance of Iran(NCRI).
A group of prominent dignitaries from the U.S. and Europe attended and spoke at the conference online.
The keynote speaker at the conference was Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran(NCRI).
Lincoln Bloomfield, Assistant Secretary of State for political military affairs (2001-2005), addressed at the conference.
The following is an excerpt from Mr. Bloomfield’s speech at the conference:
When the Belgian court first issued the verdict, they put out a lot of facts. The bomb was made from TATP. It was made in Iran, tested several times.
It had communications capabilities. It could be a much larger explosion than bombings by ISIS.
The report mentions Section 312 of the MOIS, which follows resistance members abroad. Why don’t we ever hear about the MOIS in Washington? When we see people from Iran sitting in think tanks and universities and go to Iran and talk to its leaders, do we investigate them? This is a new conversation that we need to have.
Iran abused its diplomatic privilege. It had terrorists pose as diplomats. Why don’t we talk about the foreign ministry? This is a regime that has several branches conducting acts of violence and terror. We need a new conversation in Washington.
Yes, we are concerned about Iran’s nuclear program. We are providing billions of dollars to Ukraine, our allies, to fight Russia.
The NCRI is the opposition to this regime. They are a political organization and Iran is trying to kill them and us. We need to have a new conversation.
We must understand that for 43 years, this regime has only conducted terrorism, violated the rule of law, violated international norms.
