The resolution, co-sponsored by 142 Representatives, condemns the Iranian regime’s multifaceted offenses, including acts of terrorism, fueling regional conflicts through proxy warfare, internal repression, and backing the Iranian Resistance, including the Ten-Point Plan advocated by Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI).

Voices of Unity Across the Aisle

During the introduction of the resolution, voices from both the Republican and Democratic parties resonated in unity, echoing support for the Iranian Resistance and the Iranian people’s ongoing struggle against the clerical regime.
