Remarks by Senator Mike Braun–Iran Regime’s Terrorism Summit, July 20, 2020

The National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI)  was held a global seminar on the Iranian regime’s terrorist operations during the third day of the “Free Iran Global Summit” on, July 20, 2020.

The conference under title, Terrorism by Iran’s Regime -Shut Down Tehran’s Embassies Abroad-Expel its Agents, Operatives, was held online, connecting thousands of locations throughout the world to Ashraf 3, Albania, home to the Iranian opposition People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK). This conference is over the Iranian regime’s terrorist activities across the world, by using its embassies. The conference and its panelists urged the European countries to shut down the Iranian regime’s embassies, which are indeed emissaries of terror and nests of spies. The keynote speaker of this event is Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the NCRI’s President-elect.

The theme of the conference was the Iranian regime’s international terrorist activities. Participants called on the international community to shut down the regime’s embassies and expel its ‘diplomat-terrorists’.

Senator Mike Braun (R-IN), Senate Committee on the Budget joined the Online Free Iran Global Summitday 3. In his remarks, Senator Braun said, “Since coming to the U.S. Senate, I’m joined with my colleagues in supporting a variety of resolutions that call out the Iranian government for their atrocious actions and to hold them accountable through sanctions.” 

 Here is the speech of Senator Braun:

Thank you for virtually having me at the Free Iran Global Summit, Iran Rising for Freedom.

During my 2018 campaign, I was often asked about where I stood on U.S. foreign policy.

And I always pointed to Iran as an adversary we were handling too lightly.

As a threat to our national security and a leader in human rights abuses, we must be harsh with Iran. Since coming to the U.S. Senate, I’m joined with my colleagues in supporting a variety of resolutions that call out the Iranian government for their atrocious actions and to hold them accountable through sanctions. As a U.S. senator from Indiana, I once again condemn Iran, specifically for their human rights abuses. In the past year, Iranian citizens have been denied the freedom to peacefully assemble, freedom of speech, with hundreds of protestors killed by Iranian security forces. I will continue to speak out against Iran and stand up for the Iranian people.

Thank you again for having me, and I wish you the best of luck with your just cause.
