The United States should take lead in holding the mullahs’ regime accountable
“The United States should take the lead in holding him accountable for the crimes against humanity he committed,” Pompeo said, as per Associated Press, adding that if partners in Europe and Asia deal with Raisi, “the United States will hold them accountable as well.”
“May your mission be blessed and protected, and may the Iranian people be blessed,” the Republican said, refusing to rule out a presidential candidacy in 2024.
Pompeo’s backing for the NRCI’s leader, Maryam Rajavi
Pompeo’s backing for the group was repeated by Brazile, who lauded the NRCI’s leader, Maryam Rajavi, for her “remarkable courage and leadership.”
Former UK House of Commons Speaker John Bercow, former Italian Foreign Minister Franco Frattini, former Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, and others spoke at the event, including Democratic Senators Bob Menendez and Cory Booker and Republican Senators Roy Blunt and Ted Cruz, as well as former UK House of Commons Speaker John Bercow, former Italian Foreign Minister Franco Frattini.
Anger in the mullahs’ regime
According to the IRNA news agency, the ministry also denounced Slovenian Prime Minister Janez Jansa’s address, calling it “unacceptable, against diplomatic norms and spirit” of bilateral relations.
Jansa, whose nation currently holds the rotating chair of the European Council, had previously stated his support for an impartial probe into Raisi’s role in the 1988 executions.
He stated, “The Iranian regime must be held accountable for human rights violations, and the international community must be more firm on this.”
