MEK Iran: What EU FM Must on Visit to Iran
The European Union’s High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Josep Borrell, traveled to Tehran, following the mullahs’ brutal crackdown on the November and January uprisings.
The regime will see Borrell’s visit as a green light to intensify its crimes against dissidents and the Iranian people as a whole. The regime will also use it to justify its export of terrorism and warmongering, in addition to its malign interventions in neighbouring countries, like Iraq, where people are being murdered by the regime’s proxy forces every day.

“The policies and behaviour of belligerent clerical dictatorship blatantly contradict the European Union’s values such as peace and human rights. Shaking hands with the rulers in Tehran, who must face justice for 40 years of crimes against humanity, war crimes, and genocidal killings, is illegitimate and cannot be justified even by economic interests. Investing in a regime, whose overthrow is sought by the overwhelming majority of the Iranian people, is doomed to fail and will only arouse the abhorrence of the people of Iran.”
The NCRI advised that Borrell condemn crimes against humanity in Iran, especially the recent crackdowns on protesters, and question the regime’s leaders over their crimes, including:
- Murder of 1,500 unarmed and peaceful protesters in November uprising
- The arrest of 12,000 defenseless protesters in November uprising
- Torture of those in prison and threats of execution
- Concealment of number and identities of those killed, wounded and arrested
- The cover-up of the 1988 massacre of 30,000 political prisoners, mainly members, and supporters of Mujahedin-e Khalq (PMOI/MEK Iran)
- Refusal to identify those executed and their graves
- Reason for downing the Ukrainian passenger airliner
- Why the regime refused to hand over the airplane’s black boxes
- Regime’s terrorism against dissidents in recent years, especially in France, Albania, Denmark, and the Netherlands
- Refusal to reveal those commanding and directing the attacks
The November 2019 protest began after the regime tripled the price of fuel overnight and quickly became political, with protesters chanting “Death to [Supreme Leader Ali] Khamenei” and demanding regime change. It quickly spread to 191 cities.
The recent uprising in #Iran that began on Friday, November 16, 2019, once again revealed that the #Iranian regime has no support among Iranian people and it is a very unstable and shaky regime#IranProtests @USAdarFarsi pic.twitter.com/ENZ36iP4un

The regime launched a brutal crackdown, sometimes targeting people who were not involved in the protests and even children. They also shut down the internet to stop their crimes from being released, but the Iranian people defied the internet shutdown.
The Iranian Resistance has so far named 724 victims, but the regime has refused to announce any.
