Thousands of people gathered in Ashraf 3, the home of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (Mujahedeen-e Khalq, PMOI or MEK) in Albania, on Saturday 13th July 2019. Politicians and officials from across the world attended with many making speeches to declare their support for the MEK, its leader Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, and the millions of suppressed Iranians in Iran.
On Thursday, there were two developments in the tensions between Iran and the West, which demonstrated the stark differences between the postures being maintained by each side. In the first place, the White House backed away, at least temporarily, from a previous threat of economi sanctions for Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif. While this seemingly left the door wide open for the negotiations that President Donald Trump has long said he would undertake with no precondition, the Iranians turned away from that opening by attempting, albeit unsuccessfully, to follow through on a previous threat to seize a British tanker in the area of the Strait of Hormuz.
