Dr. Alejo Vidal-Quadras
Ladies and Gentlemen,
It is a great pleasure to be with you today.
I'd like to extend my gratitude for your interest and your sense of responsibility toward the ideal of freedom and the Iranian Resistance.
I want to use this opportunity to talk about two important developments; first, the November 24 Geneva accord between the P5+1 and the Iranian regime; and, second, the massacre in Ashraf, which took place on September 1, 2013.
These two developments are related and both have their roots in the Iranian regime's incurable crises.
At the Geneva nuclear conference, the religious dictatorship had no other alternative but to take a step back and retreat.
Lawmakers call on Belgian government to place efforts to save lives of Ashrafi hostages, provide security for Camp Liberty
- Silence and inaction by US, UN and EU in the face of the Ashraf massacre and fate of hostages held by Maliki prepare the ground for another catastrophe for Liberty residents
- Until mullahs fully stop uranium enrichment, sign the Additional Protocol and implement UN Security Council resolutions, the key to the bomb is in their hands
On Tuesday, December 3rd, in a session in the Belgian Senate held with the participation of this country’s lawmakers, Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, called on Belgian MPs and Senators to defend the rights and freedoms of resistance members in Liberty, and asked the Belgian government to take action on the European Union level to impel the Iraqi government to immediately release the seven resistance members taken hostage and provide security in Liberty.
Ladies and Gentlemen,
I am very pleased and delighted to be at Belgium's house of democracy once again.
I have come here today to invite the Belgian people and their elected representatives to support the Iranian people and the Iranian Resistance in their struggle for democracy and human rights.
The relationship between Belgium and Iran has a long history. But, three decades ago, a new factor entered into this relationship, namely the expression of solidarity of the Belgian Parliament with the Iranian parliament-in-exile, the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI).
Your support for the humanitarian rights of the members of this Resistance in camps Ashraf and Liberty in Iraq is unforgettable.
Following an earthquake in the towns of Borazjan and Dashestan near the city of Bushehr located in southern Iran, which led to many people being killed, wounded and left without any shelter, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian Resistance expressed her condolences to the grieving families and wished a speedy recovery for the wounded.
She called on all the Iranian people, especially the youth, in neighboring provinces to rush to the support of the wounded and those left homeless. Independent aid in such critical conditions is key, especially considering the mullahs’ delay in providing aid, plundering people’s voluntary support and its hideous efforts aimed at announcing the amount of damage as very limited.
