Opposition leader Maryam Rajavi urges G7 to recognize Iran regime as threat to world peace

Iranian opposition leader Maryam Rajavi has called on world leaders attending the G7 meeting in the French city of Biarritz to recognize the regime in Iran as a threat to world peace and security.

Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), called on G7 leaders and the UN Security Council to "declare that the clerical regime in Iran is a threat to global peace and security.”

“We call on all countries to join the international front against the religious fascism” in Iran, Rajavi said.

“The dossier of human rights abuses and massacre of political prisoners in Iran must be referred to the UN Security Council and international tribunals,” she added.

“The International community, and specifically the European Union, must recognize that resistance is the Iranian people’s right to establish the sovereignty of the people of Iran,” Maryam Rajavi said in a tweet on Sunday.

The leaders of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the UK, and the US — the world's seven largest, IMF-designated advanced economies — who are meeting this weekend in Biarritz, southern France, agreed that Iran must be stopped "at all costs" from getting a nuclear weapon.
