Struan Stevenson praises Mahmoud Abbas for meeting Iran opposition leader

The National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) has reported that former European lawmaker Struan Stevenson praised Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas for meeting with the President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, Maryam Rajavi.

The former MEP who is currently President of the European Iraqi Freedom Association (EIFA) said in a video message on Thursday 4th August that the Iranian regime opposes peace in the Middle East and is sponsoring terrorist groups to pursue its nefarious agenda.

On 30th July President Abbas met with Mrs. Maryam Rajavi to discuss the crises in the region. He reiterated the need to combat fundamentalism and terrorism in the region and informed Mrs. Rajavi of the latest developments in the Middle East, in particular regarding Palestine and France’s initiative.

Mrs. Rajavi thanked the Palestinian resistance and its leader for its solidarity with the Iranian people and the Resistance and congratulated the Palestinian government “on its victories and expressed hope that the goal of the Palestinian people would be achieved”. She highlighted that the Iranian regime is “the main instigator of sectarian discord, fundamentalism and terrorism in the entire region, in particular in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Yemen, and Palestine, but she added that today the mullahs’ regime is at its weakest and most fragile and vulnerable state”. This is evident when seeing the “hysteric reaction” of the regime’s officials and state media after the Iranian Resistance’s July 9 gathering.

Mr. Stevenson applauds President Abbas’ great courage in standing up to the Iranian regime’s meddling in the region.
