comment on cancellation of the scheduled trip of Javad Zarif to Italy
According to news agencies, Javad Zarif, the Foreign Minister of the clerical regime, has canceled his trip to Italy scheduled for December 5-7.
Shahin Gobadi, press spokesman of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran said:
“Javad Zarif is the chief apologist of the religious dictatorship ruling in Iran on the international arena. He called off his trip in fear of the expression of outrage on the international level over the regime’s crimes. During the November nationwide uprising in Iran, at least 750 protesters were confirmed killed by the repressive forces, according to the network of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) inside the country. The actual number of victims is much higher. At least 12,000 protesters were arrested and more than 4,000 wounded. Subsequent to partial opening of the Internet in Iran, more details of the crimes perpetrated by the regime against the defenseless protesters is coming to light.
The protests were a turning point in the struggle of the Iranian people against the ruling theocracy. There is a new balance of power between the people and the resistance on the one hand, and the regime on the other. Despite ruthless crackdown, the clerical regime cannot to contain the situation and it constantly expresses its paranoia of another public eruption.
Javad Zarif and all of the officials of the regime must be held accountable for crimes against humanity. Any invitation to these criminals amounts to complicity in the crimes perpetrated by this regime. The mullahs’ regime must be banished by the international community.”
