Paris - Asharq Al-Awsat
In Paris, the head of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, Maryam Rajavi, said the fall of the Iranian regime was certain, emphasizing a number of indications, including street protests and mounting calls for change at the political, social and economic levels.
“The change of the regime is within reach now more than ever,” she stressed during Iran’s annual opposition conference, “Free Iran”, which kicked off on Saturday in Villepinte in Paris.
Rajavi based her statements on recent developments across Iranian cities, quoting Masoud Rajavi, whom she described as the leader of the opposition, as saying: “If Iran resisted, the world will stand with us and on our side.”
She also underlined the need for an “organized movement and a leading organization”, referring to the council that she currently chairs.
Addressing high-level delegations from dozens of regional and foreign capitals, Rajavi called for “a free and non-nuclear Iran that lives in peaceful coexistence with regional and international cooperation.”
This message was also emphasized by other speakers, who denounced the current regime and called for support for the uprising of the Iranian people and for the establishment of a “different Iran.”
Trump’s personal lawyer and former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani said, as quoted by Reuters: “We are now realistically being able to see an end to the regime in Iran.”
The Conference speakers included representatives from France, Belgium, the United States, Canada, Britain, Italy, Germany, Albania, Switzerland, Romania, Yemen, Jordan, Palestine, Morocco and many others.
