In response to the Iranian regime’s alleged use of their embassies to plot terror attacks against its political opponents across the continent, European nations are being called upon by the popular Iranian resistance group, the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), to shut down Tehran’s embassies.

While the Trump administration escalates sanctions against President Hassan Rouhani’s Islamic Republic, NCRI Deputy Director Alireza Jafarzadeh told reporters at a news conference in Washington, D.C., “What we are calling for is closing the Iranian regime’s embassies.” The Deputy Director added, “These diplomatic relations have allowed the regime to plot terrorist attacks and assassinations in the West.”

Iran regime’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has yet again tried to portray the false notion that the Iranian Regime is a moderate one when he appeared on CBS’s Face the Nation last weekend.

He argued that the US’s recent designation of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) as a terror group would tell the Iranian people that the US is not a “worthy” negotiating partner and said that Trump’s maximum pressure campaign was “squeezing the Iranian people, not the government”.

National Security Adviser John Bolton has explained that the push that is part of the White House’s effort “to bring Iran’s oil exports to zero” is a way of ratcheting up economic pressure on Iran. Last month, the Trump administration kicked its “maximum pressure” campaign into high gear by announcing that it would not expend waivers to countries like China, India, and Japan and allow them to continue buying Iranian oil. Instead, they will face the prospect of being excluded from the American market.

During the Iran-Iraq war in the eighties, the Iranian regime recruited a large number of child soldiers. Many of their parents were not even aware that their children had been recruited until it was too late.

Iran signed the United Nations Conventions on the Rights of the Child two and a half decades ago, but it clearly means nothing to the Iranian regime because it still continues to recruit child soldiers.
