Iranians Protest Regime Giveaway of Caspian Sea

The Caspian sea

The Caspian sea that was once part of Iran, is now shared between five states. Iranian regime’s President, Hassan Rouhani signed an agreement, accepting a small share of the sea, nearly 11% of the total area in a bid to gain regional support for its falling regime.

On Saturday, August 18th, dozens gathered in front of the Majlis (Parliament) in Tehran to protest the Caspian Sea Treaty. The treaty, signed by regime President Hassan Rouhani on August 12th, signed away Iran’s claim to a large portion of the Caspian Sea.

 

The giveaway of the Caspian Sea is widely unpopular with the Iranian people, who see it as the latest effort by the regime to hold onto power by whatever means possible. The Caspian Sea is one of Iran’s greatest natural resources, and the despicable move by the regime to give it away has been met by widespread criticism.

Demonstrators chanted anti-government slogans during their protest, including:

“Death to Rouhani, the president of the regime of Iran!”

“We shall fight, we shall win back our Caspian Sea!”

“Selling out the Caspian is like selling out your honor!”

 

The protesters were attacked by security forces and anti-riot police, who attempted to stop the protest. There were reports of a number of arrests of protesters by security forces. Those who were arrested were taken to undisclosed locations.

 

The Caspian Sea legal convention was signed on August 12th, paving the way for the sea to be divided between Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Russia, Turkmenistan, and Iran. Iran’s ownership of the Caspian Sea will drop from 50 percent to 11 percent under the treaty. The convention also led to agreements on a ban on ships owned by countries other than the states bordering the Caspian Sea, as well as exports of the sea’s oil and gas reserves. The treaty was signed by presidents of the five border nations at a meeting in Aktau.

 

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the Iranian Opposition, which includes the MEK, responded to the Caspian Sea Treaty in a statement.

“For Khomeini, Khamenei and Rouhani, neither water, nor the land, nor the culture, nor the lives, nor the wealth of the Iranian people have any value. Only one thing matters: Preserving the rule of the mullahs, which Khomeini described as the ‘absolute imperative,’ and for which one can abrogate Islamic edicts, and first and foremost give away the land and water of Iran and its people and massacre its valiant children in the prisons.” She added “Indeed, what could an invader do that the mullahs have not done to Iran and the Iranian people. The mullahs are among the worst in Iran’s history.”
