Meeting of Mrs. Maryam Rajavi with MEPs in Strasbourg

While at the European Parliament, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi the president-elect of the NCRI held meetings with various MEPs, including Mr. Hannes Heide, an MEP from Austria representing the Group of the Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats, Mr. Francisco Guerreiro, an MEP from Portugal affiliated with the Group of the Greens/European Free Alliance, and Ms. Patrizia Toia, an MEP from Italy associated with the Group of the Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats. Ms. Toia serves as the Vice-Chair of the EP Committee on Industry, Research, and Energy and is a former Italian government minister.

During this meeting, Maryam Rajavi engaged in discussions with the representatives on the situation in Iran, developments in the Middle East, and the activities of the Resistance. She underscored that the theocratic regime in Iran is resorting to widespread executions and repression within the country as a means to sustain its rule. Additionally, she emphasized the regime’s export of terrorism, fundamentalism, and warmongering beyond Iran’s borders—an explicit strategy articulated by Khamenei to circumvent internal conflicts and crises. Mrs. Rajavi emphasized that, faced with uprisings by the Iranian people, the regime lacks any alternative shield or solution to maintain its grip on power.

Further discussions took place at her residence with Mr. Jean-Philippe Maure, Vice Chairman of the Bas-Rhin Provincial Council, former member of the French National Assembly, and a founding member of the French Parliamentary Committee for a Democratic Iran (CPID), along with Mr. Frédéric Reiss, a former member of the French National Assembly and a veteran CPID member.

The conversation delved into the mullahs’ regime’s role in the current regional crisis and its warmongering efforts. Maryam Rajavi reiterated her position, stating, “In my address at the European Parliament, I emphasized that the precondition for achieving peace and stability in the region lies in the overthrow of the regime—a source of both crisis and warmongering, as well as the export of terrorism.”

Mr. Maure, a founding member of CPID, expressed his commitment, stating, “We are fully dedicated to supporting the Iranian people in their endeavor to topple this regime and usher in an era of democracy and freedom.” He highlighted CPID’s 15-year history of extraordinary efforts in supporting the Iranian Resistance, emphasizing its staunch defense of the Iranian people and their cause. Mr. Maure also paid tribute to the late Adrien Zeller, a former representative of the European Parliament from France, acknowledging Zeller’s unwavering support for the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI) and the Iranian Resistance, stating that they continue to walk in Zeller’s footsteps.

During the conversation about the regime’s proxy groups, Mr. Reiss emphasized how these factions contribute to the regime’s goal of fueling conflict. Reflecting on the activities of the Resistance Units within Iran, he asserted, “There is no question that this regime will be ousted, and fortunately, there exists an organized alternative capable of replacing it.”
