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’.

Here is the speech of Rep. Tom Emmer:

Hi, everyone.  My name is Tom Emmer, and I represent Minnesota’s 6th Congressional District.  I’m excited to be part of your annual summit, and I stand with your mission for a free and democratic Iran. 

We have common ground in our shared pursuit to guide our governments by the principles of their people.  In addition, I was proud to cosponsor a resolution in the U.S. House of Representatives, which condemns Iranian state-sponsored terrorism, and expresses our support for the Iranian people’s desire for a democratic, nonnuclear republic of Iran.  I’m also encouraged by the passage of a resolution in January which supports the right to freedom of expression for the people of Iran and condemns the Iranian regime for its crackdown on legitimate protests.   

I look forward to the day when all Iranians have the freedom of expression without living in fear.  Thank you for your hope for a free Iran and for all your hard work to make it a reality.  Thank you, again, for letting me join you.
