MEK Iran: Former Foreign Minister and Head of the AEOI Admits Terrorism
Former Iranian regime Foreign Minister and Head of the Atomic Energy Organization Ali Akbar Salehi confessed that terrorism and diplomacy go hand in hand in Tehran and that all key regime institutions and ministries promote the government’s goal of terrorism exportation. On the second anniversary of Qassem Soleimani, the eliminated commander of the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) Quds Force, he made an unusual statement in an interview with the state-run Akharin Khabar website on January 1.
Salehi admitted the intervention of mullahs in Arab countries
“We worked together [with Soleimani and the Quds Force] to appoint ambassadors to Libya and Tunisia because these countries required special ambassadors due to their particular circumstances,” Salehi explained. “To put it another way, our ambassadors to those countries should have both diplomatic and field experience.” After consulting with commander Soleimani, we selected our diplomats. “Our ambassadors to Tunisia and Libya are Peyman Jebel, the current head of the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB), and Hossain Akbari,” he continued.
Salehi further admitted that the dictatorship employed a variety of techniques and covert operations to intervene in Arab countries, including the Red Crescent of Iran. In a 2019 interview with the state-run internet station Aparat, Saeed Ghasemi, one of the former IRGC top commanders, stated that in the 1990s, while wearing the Iranian Red Crescent outfit, he traveled to Bosnia to train Muslim fighters against the Serbs.
IRGC Quds Force employs improvised explosive devices
“When the Libyan conflict erupted, I consulted [Soleimani], who advised me to come to Libya. This journey occurred during Gadhafi’s demise when the violence was still ongoing. “I saw our friends at the Quds Force had provided the means to produce prosthesis with the help of the Red Crescent in Libya to aid the revolutionary Libyan forces,” Salehi stated.
To achieve its “cultural and humanitarian goals,” the IRGC Quds Force employs improvised explosive devices (IEDs) or suicide bombers to “surprise” people. The heart-breaking sights of slain Syrian toddlers and decapitated innocent Iraqis by the Quds Force speak volumes about the terrorist group’s humanitarian efforts. Salehi also acknowledged Soleimani’s damaging involvement in Iraq, as well as the regime’s policy of exporting “revolution” across the region through the deployment of proxy terrorist groups.
Soleimani had tight contact with ISIS
“Because of his field experience, Soleimani had a distinct personality. As a result, many of the individuals who obtained positions in Iraq were close friends and in contact with Soleimani. “His successes in Iraq are a result of his previous relationships with these people and their mutual trust,” Salehi remarked. It’s worth noting that these so-called “Iraqi officials” were regime operatives, part of a group of 32,000 agents identified by the people’s Mojahedin of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran) to be on the government’s payroll in Iraq in the early 2000s.
Soleimani has a tight contact with ISIS, according to Salehi. “There were some crises in the region, and [Soleimani] had to intervene.” Regardless of the problems, ISIS consistently claimed that if “commander Soleimani gave us assurance, we will transfer our forces to another region.” This is really critical.”In April 2021, Salehi’s replacement, Mohammad Javad Zarif, revealed in a leaked interview that the regime’s “Foreign Ministry had a security structure” during the regime’s factional fighting.
Zarif had stated that he met with Soleimani on a regular basis
“Security issues have plagued our Foreign Ministry since its inception.” Since the revolution, the Ministry’s designated mandate has been the security-political agenda. “In the 1990s, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ economic branch was decommissioned and replaced by regional administration with more political-security orientations,” he explained. Zarif had previously stated that he met with Soleimani on a regular basis.
Assadollah Assadi, an Iranian diplomat-terrorist residing in Vienna, and three accomplices were arrested by European authorities in 2018 for preparing to attack the Iranian Resistance’s annual gathering in France. This surprising statement confirms what the Iranian Resistance has been saying for decades: Tehran utilizes its diplomatic missions as a hub for espionage and terrorism. As a result, it is past time for the West to act decisively and close down the regime’s embassies as well as remove its agents.
