Fatmir Mediu’s Remarks to the Free Iran World Summit 2021- July 10, 2021

Fatmir Mediu, Chairman of the Republican Party of Albania, addressed at the Free Iran World Summit 2021 on July 10, 2021.

Dear Madame Rajavi, dear friends from Iran, dear friends from around the world, I have been privileged to get to know and work with my friends from Iran and all of you in the great cause of freedom.

Nothing is more important in life than freedom. Thank you for giving me the chance once more to address this extraordinary international conference from across the globe.

Iran is a country of great history, and should be the country of Iranians that want to live in peace and freedom. I should congratulate every Iranian people on the resistance for organizing such a great gathering. The Iranian people have a history of almost half of the century protesting, resisting and sacrificing for the country and freedom. We have seen it in 1999, 2011, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, and more than 1,500 people were killed during the November 2019 popular protest.

First, I believe we should be uniting and condemning all these brutal atrocities of the Iran regime against Iranian people and MEK. But I don’t believe this is enough. Second, we shouldn’t just say great words about the sacrifice of Iranian people, but we should be united and have discussions in our parliament, congress, and we should push our governments to stand strong against brutal atrocities of the regime.

As Albanians who have tried to do our part, and we are still doing our part, not just host our friends from Iran, but stand firm in policy against terrorism. We did expel the Iranian regime ambassador in Albania together with three other diplomats in December 2018 for their engagement blob against MEK in Tehran.

I believe that all agents and mercenaries in the Iranian regime, intelligence, security agencies should be expelled from Albania and the rest of Europe. On April 2021, US Congress supported the resolution No. 118 that was a support for Iranian people’s desire for democratic, secular, and non-nuclear Republic of Iran and condemns violation of human rights the state sponsored terrorism by the Iranian government. The resolution also supports the 10-point plan of Madame Rajavi, NCRI President for free Iran.

Thanks to American congressmen, the Resolution praises positive and important steps of Albanian government expelling multiple Iranian diplomats in response to the news that the regime has also deployed terrorist activities against members of MEK in Albania.

We should work on the same resolutions in our Parliament’s and the European Parliament as well. Recently, Iran had so-called elections. They elected President Raisi that is accused for mass murder and crime against humanity. It makes more obvious the Iranian regime will not stop being against his own people and threat to the rest of the world. Amnesty International in 2021 June 19, Raisi has risen to the present the presidency instead of being investigated for the crimes against humanity of murder and forced disappearance and torture. His grim reminder the impunity reigns supreme in Iran.

As chairman, Republican Party of Albania, I do support NCRI as the alternative to the regime to bring about peace and freedom in Iran. The 10-point plan of Madame Rajavi, the president-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran for democratic, secular, and non-nuclear Republic of Iran is the way for free Iran. Once more, thank you very much and God bless you all.
