“Our message to the international community, especially after the regime has closed ranks and installed a mass murderer as its president, is that it should not make concessions to a nuclear-armed butcher,” said Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the president-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), in her address to the conference. “And not to provide assistance to the mullahs who are on the brink of collapse.”

Mrs. Rajavi described the West’s policy toward Iran as “a vicious cycle of deception and appeasement.”

“While the regime has been hiding its nuclear program by deceiving the world, the international community has been trying to stop or curb this project by granting concessions or by showing complacency,” Rajavi said.

After reciting the regime’s history of deceiving world powers and secretly continuing its nuclear program, Mrs. Rajavi said, “It is clear how the regime continued to advance towards developing an atomic bomb at every step by deceiving the world and receiving concessions. The result is that Khamenei is building a bomb and will not stop. Any agreement he signs to reduce these activities, and any promise he makes, are pure lies.”

Mrs. Rajavi emphasized that “any agreement that does not completely close down the regime’s bomb-making, enrichment and nuclear facilities is unacceptable. And the Iranian people will not accept it.”

The opposition president also the regime must also be obliged “to withdraw the Revolutionary Guard Crops (IRGC) from Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Afghanistan, and Lebanon.”

And finally, any agreement that doesn’t take into account the brutal human rights violations in Iran and does not oblige the mullahs to stop torturing and executing young Iranians will be unacceptable, Mrs. Rajavi said.

“Anything less, in any wrapping, is tantamount to caving in to the mullahs’ nuclear catastrophe,” she said, adding that the nuclear weapons program is “an important part of Khamenei’s strategy to escape his overthrow.”

But overthrow is a fate that the regime cannot escape, Mrs. Rajavi emphasized. “Despite all these sufferings, the Iranian people and their Resistance are determined to overthrow the religious dictatorship. And it will not matter if the regime is nuclear armed or not, we will overthrow it,” she said.
