The Free Iran World Summit, onwards to a Democratic Iran, was opened Saturday, July 1, 2023, at the headquarters of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) in Auvers-sur-Oise, north of Paris.
Over 500 legislators, former presidents, prime ministers, ministers, and government officials from the US, Europe, and the Middle East attended the summit, and some addressed the event.
The keynote speaker of this summit was Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the president-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI).
An excerpt from Mrs. Rajavi’s speech at the World Summit of Free Iran is as follows:
We neither desire nor have ever asked foreign governments to help our people and our resistance to topple the regime. Instead, we urge them to cease supporting the mullahs.
We encourage them to recognize how the American people and nations across Europe are expressing their unyielding solidarity with the Iranian uprising.
Take note of the resolution passed by the majority of elected representatives of the American people! Observe the declarations made by 3,600 parliamentarians in 61 legislative assemblies in 40 countries -including the majority of members of the parliaments in 29 countries – who reject both the fascism of the Shah and religious fascism, endorse the Ten-point Plan proposed by this Resistance, and support the Iranian people’s desire for a democratically elected republic and a non-nuclear Iran.
Indeed, what crime has this Resistance committed? Its greatest offense is its unwavering commitment to not waste a single day or hour in its efforts to overthrow this regime. It ceaselessly works towards organizing resistance and fostering uprisings.
