Iran’s Regime is Increasingly Facing International Isolation

The Iranian regime is increasingly experiencing international isolation due to its actions on the world and regional stage. The International Atomic Energy Agency’s Board of Governors (IAEA) has demanded that the regime allows inspection of its nuclear sites and cooperate fully with inspectors.

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) has acknowledged the IAEA’s resolution but warns that the regime has never given up its aim of acquiring a nuclear bomb. “The policies and actions of the mullahs’ regime, five years after the nuclear deal with the P5 + 1 countries, leave no doubt that this regime has never given up the project to acquire an atomic bomb and continues the deception and concealment. The regime uses all the facilities and concessions that the nuclear deal has given it to pursue terrorism, foreign warfare, and domestic repression,” she said.

The U.N. Human Rights Council has also extended the role of the U.N. Special Rapporteur, Javaid Rehman in investigating human rights violations by the Iranian regime.

The U.S. State Department specified the role of Iran in regional terrorism in its 2019 report. Regional ‘proxy groups’ used by Iran to further its regional ambitions were also specified. The State Department categorized the regime in Iran as a “State Sponsor of Terrorism.”

The failed bombing of the annual “Free Iran” conference in Paris in June 2018 was mentioned in the report. The bombing effort led to the arrest of a so-called Iranian “diplomat,” Assadollah Assadi.

A draft resolution has been submitted to the U.N. Security Council, extending the arms embargo on Iran. Both China and Russia will likely veto the resolution, but the U.S. is expected to submit a second alternative resolution. A more limited draft resolution by the E.U. which attempts to extend the embargo up to 203 was met with rage by the regime.

Hassan Rouhani, the regime’s president, has expressed the regime’s concern about any extension of sanctions against Iran. Retaliation by the regime may involve withdrawing from the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and deliberately violating its adherence to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action or JCPOA. Even the regime’s strategists admit that this may lead to unilateral international action against the regime, even military action against it. Withdrawal from the NPT would be “a great mistake,” according to a regime expert, Davoud Hermidas-Bavan. According to Hermidas-Bavan, any withdrawal and non-compliance with the IAEA would just lead to greater sanctions on Iran and an extension of the arms embargo.

Another regime expert, Freydoon Majlesi, agreed that withdrawing from the NPT would be a “dangerous decision.”

Additional recent sanctions by the U.S. sanctions have been applied to four metal companies that operate in the regime’s metal sphere of operations. Sanctions have also been extended to a German-owned and three UAE sales agents which are controlled or owned by one of the four steel companies, the Mobarekh Steel Company.

The Iranian regime is spending huge amounts of cash on pursuing policies of regional terrorism. At the same time, Iranians have lost their lives in an epidemic that the regime has failed to adequately deal with. 

The Iranian opposition The Peoples’ Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran) announced on, June 29, 2020, that the number of death in 341 Iranian cities has surged past 62,600.
