The lawmakers support the re-impose of all UN sanctions under UN Security Council resolution 2231 and want their governments to implement all punitive measures especially an arms embargo.
The lawmakers also called for the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) to be officially internationally designated as a terrorist organization, due to its violent part to play in the crackdown on protests especially the recent uprising in November 2019, and resistance movements, such as the pro-democracy opposition, the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) and the People’s Mujahedin of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran). To ensure there is no further crackdown on protests and terrorist plots from the IRGC it is imperative that the repressive and terrorist organization is disbanded.
The Rt. Hon David Jones MP said #UK #France #Germany is mistaken in their adherence to the flawed nuclear deal that does not hold the regime to account. The regime to continue its domestic crackdown and export terrorism https://t.co/Uy5scy41aH #MEK #Iran pic.twitter.com/qFRarjVSfF

British MP David Jones said that the UK, Germany, and France were wrong to abide by the nuclear deal with Iran, when the regime has not only openly flouted it but, more importantly, used that money to suppress its people and export terrorism. He called for the re-imposition of sanctions and an international inquiry into the 1988 massacre of 30,000 political prisoners, most of them members and supporters of the (PMOI / MEK Iran).
MP Steve McCabe advised that Iran’s “recent brutal crackdown on protesters” has confirmed Iran’s “pariah status” and that dialogue with the mullahs would be “fruitless”.
He said: “The international community must move to fully implement the UN sanctions against the regime in Iran and secure a UN inquiry into its current and past human rights violations.”
.@steve_mccabe: It’s time to consider more serious consequences. This includes expelling Iranian diplomats, even the ambassadors, and closing embassies and ending diplomatic relations.#NoImpunity4Mullahs #StopExecutionsInIranhttps://t.co/Njys7AcEnU

The politicians also urge that the terrorist plots against the Iranian Resistance NCRI and (PMOI / MEK Iran), by the Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), in Europe, been strongly condemned and advise the governments to support the Iranian people in their fight for democracy.
MP Bob Blackman said: “An Iranian diplomat awaits prosecution in Belgium for his alleged role in a bomb plot against the gathering of the Iranian opposition NCRI and (PMOI / MEK Iran), in Paris in 2018… The UK and other European governments should scrutinize the Iranian diplomats working in their countries and consider expelling them and if necessary close down those embassies given that the regime’s use of diplomatic cover for its terrorist activities is both known and well-document.”

The signatories come from all across the political spectrum in:
- the United Kingdom
Sir David Amess MP, the co-chair of BCFIF said: “The UN sanctions and Security Council resolution against Iran must be implemented immediately in order to counter regime’s terrorism and destabilizing activities in the region and the world. But, the ultimate solution to these threats from Tehran lies in the hands of the Iranian people and their pro-democracy Resistance movement led by Mrs. Madam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran’s (NCRI), who struggle for a free and democratic Iran. I urge the international community, including the UK Government, to recognize and support this viable Iranian democratic alternative.”
