The main Iranian opposition coalition, the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), has strongly condemned the presence of Hassan Rouhani, President of the religious fascism ruling Iran, in New York and at the United Nations General Assembly. The NCRI said on Sunday in a statement that Rouhani is among the most senior officials involved in the production of the nuclear bomb, 120,000 political executions, and warmongering and slaughter in the region. This regime does not represent the Iranian people and its leaders, from whatever faction, should face justice for crimes against humanity in Iran. Iran’s seat at the United Nations should be given to its people and their legitimate resistance.
