Robert Joseph’s Remarks to the International Conference, Call for Dismantling Iran’s Regime MOIS Terrorist Network in Europe

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).

Robert Joseph, Under Secretary of State for Arms Control and International Security (2007), addressed at the conference.

The following is an excerpt from Mr. Joseph’s speech at the conference:

Why did the regime risk the consequences of killing dignitaries? Why did it risk alienating its commercial relations with those governments? It is desperation. The principal source of desperation is the Iranian people’s demands for democracy and human rights.

Through four decades, the regime has made an enemy of its own people. The people’s demand for change is the number one threat to the regime.

This regime will do anything to stay in power. The prime target was Mrs. Rajavi, leader of the democratic and secular alternative inside and outside Iran. She is the symbol of hope for the future of Iran.

The NCRI and MEK provide the viable alternative to the religious dictatorship of the mullahs. The aspirations of the Iranian people for freedom cannot be denied.

What should be the response to this blatant act of terrorism? The EU should have adopted a firm policy of designating the MOIS and IRGC as terrorist entities, closing embassies that conduct terrorist activities. This did not happen. Instead, European capitals continue the appeasement policy toward Iran’s regime. In the US, the guilty verdict should have dismissed any hope of reform.

The administration replaced maximum pressure with maximum appeasement. The Iranians kept coming back for more and more concessions. Iran demands that the US removes IRGC from the list of terrorist organizations.

The US would delist a terrorist organization with the blood of hundreds of Americans on its hands to provide the regime with billions of dollars to fund terrorism. We must support the resistance of Iran.
