Alaeddin Borujerdi, who has previously served as the Chairman of the Foreign Policy and National Security of the parliament, said: “[MEK] is part of the American puzzle against the Islamic Republic in the Warsaw security conference. Recently, we’ve seen European countries take measures against the Islamic Republic under pressure from the US.”
These measures that Borujerdi warns against including the relocation of MEK members from Iraq to safety in Albania and the recent EU sanctions levied against Iran for terrorism, which included adding that Iranian Intelligence Ministry and two of its members to its terror watch list and freezing their assets in Europe.
This came after at least three European countries – France, Denmark and Netherlands – publically expressed concern in the last year over Iran’s intensifying terrorist and spying activities in Europe, including two failed bomb plots, one thwarted assassination attempt, and two assassinations.
Borujerdi recommended that Iran reduce diplomatic relations with Poland so that the Polish government “understand that [the Regime] will not remain indifferent to the plotting of the Americans”.
Borujerdi, a close confidant to Iranian regime supreme leader Ali Khamenei, is just the latest in a series of high-profile Iranian officials to publically voice their concerns about the conference, which will focus on Iran’s destructive role in the region.
On Sunday, Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif called the conference an “anti-Iran circus” and threatened to take measures against Poland.
But these officials are accidentally voicing their real fear, that tougher action against them on the international stage will weaken the Regime and help the Iranian people and their organised resistance to overthrow the mullahs. After all, anti-regime protests still rage across the country and they are only growing stronger.
American and Polish authorities announced in a joint statement last Friday that they would be holding a global conference in Warsaw to promote peace and security in the Middle East by focusing on countering the meddling of the Iranian Regime.
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the meeting would “focus on Middle East stability and peace and freedom and security here in this region, and that includes an important element of making sure that Iran is not a destabilizing influence”.
