Slovakian MEP Ivan Stefanec addressed the first day of the Free Iran World Summit on July 1, 2023.
Ivan Stefanec: Whole World Needs A Free Iran
The full text of Slovakian MEP Ivan Stefanec’s remarks is as follows:
Madame Rajavi, I came from the European Parliament, as we met recently to show raising support, also from European Parliamentarians. And I’d like to tell you and all distinguished guests that I feel very good today because I feel I am this friend who shares the same values and foremost the value of freedom. 30 years ago, in my country in Slovakia, there was also no freedom. And it didn’t look like that there will be change, but people believe so, and it came.
And I feel the same situation right now, that many, many Iranian people, feel that change is coming. They believe so. They are very much active. And this is very important.
I’d like to tell you that this is important not only for Iran but for the whole world. Because democracy creates not only opportunities for people but also it creates opportunities for cooperation among countries. While autocracies, they suppress human rights and also create threats to the rest of the world. So, we need free Iran, the whole world needs free Iran.
And I do believe that for the changes, there are three conditions leadership, plan, and people. We have great leadership of Madame Rajavi, yourself, we have Ten-Point Plan and we have a lot of people who have freedom at the bottom of their hearts. So, I do believe that change is coming.
Long live free Iran. We stand by you all in the European Parliament.
