MEK Iran: Raisi Lies at UN
The National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), and the People’s Mujahedin of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran), reported that Iranian regime president Ebrahim Raisi spoke to the United Nations General Assembly, and his speech was full of lies and threats to global peace and security, as one would expect from a serial criminal.
Raisi role in the massacre of more than 30,000 political prisoners in 1988
Raisi began his statement by stating that he wishes to transmit a message of “rationality, justice, and freedom” to the world as the “elected of the great people of Iran.”
Raisi, interestingly, did not attend the meeting in person and instead delivered a pre-recorded message to the UN General Assembly. Because of his past record of suppressing freedoms and abusing human rights, including his role in the massacre of more than 30,000 political prisoners in 1988, the regime’s own media and analysts speculated that his visit to New York would have sparked outrage among Iranian ex-pats and human rights organizations, and the trip would have raised too many issues that the regime would prefer to avoid.
Raisi being an elected person is meaningless
To the rest of the world, the mere mention of being an elected person is meaningless. More than 90% of the Iranian public boycotted the so-called polls that saw Raisi elected president, a reality that has been accepted by media and analysts around the world. Even regime officials admitted that the poor attendance had never happened before in the government’s history.
Raisi emphasized the need of all parties to the nuclear talks to remain committed to their duties under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and chastised the US for not easing nuclear sanctions in his speech.
The regime’s pursuit of weapons-grade uranium
Raisi made no mention of rising worries about the regime’s pursuit of weapons-grade uranium. The International Atomic Energy Agency, the UN’s nuclear watchdog, stated just two weeks ago that the dictatorship was storing highly enriched uranium and refused to answer inquiries concerning the military components of its nuclear program. The Iranian leadership has been urged by world powers to take steps to comply with the JCPOA.
Instead, Raisi reiterated that lifting sanctions by the US is the only way to make the nuclear talks succeed.
Ali Khamenei’s prohibition on vaccine imports
Raisi went on to accuse the West of impeding Iran’s coronavirus response by imposing medical sanctions. Raisi made no mention of the regime’s supreme leader Ali Khamenei’s prohibition on vaccine imports from the United States and the United Kingdom.
“We had planned to import vaccines from reputable international sources from the start,” Raisi explained, “but sanctions on medicine prevented the Iranian people from doing so.”
No restrictions have been imposed on humanitarian aid
The US has repeatedly said that no restrictions have been imposed on humanitarian aid, food, agricultural products, medication, or medical devices.
Since February 2020, Iran has been plagued by one of the world’s deadliest covid pandemics, with approximately 450,000 people dying, mostly as a result of the regime’s criminal and destructive policies.
While Iran’s neighbors warn of Tehran’s terrorist intervention in their countries, Raisi describes the mullahs’ government as “inspiring” and “security-preserving.”
Billions of dollars his dictatorship spend on terror proxies
“The Islamic Republic’s security-building model is based on regional mechanisms based on diplomacy, with no external interference. Raisi claimed, “our policy is to preserve the stability and sovereignty of all countries in the region,” omitting the billions of dollars his dictatorship spends on terror proxies like Hezbollah in Lebanon, Hashd Al-Shabi in Iraq, the Assad regime in Syria, and the Houthis in Yemen every year.
While Raisi boasted and lied about his regime’s triumphs, Iranians conducted rallies around the world, exposing his crimes and demanding his indictment by an international tribunal. Raisi does not represent the Iranian people, and he does not deserve to be granted a podium to address the world, said former political prisoners and families of prisoners and dissidents slain by Raisi and other regime officials in demonstrations.
