Warsaw Meeting Eyes Tehran Malign Influence in the Region

The Warsaw meeting is a global campaign seeking to rally the world behind a new plan for the Middle East. This conference characterized as an attempt to create “a better, more stable Middle East,” in which the main goal is to apply maximum pressure on Iran.

Countries from Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East will be taking part in this conference to discuss the Iranian regime’s destructive and destabilizing influence in the region. Even a solution to confront Tehran’s bellicosity may be part of their talks.

“We are going to gather up to talk about the future of Middle East stability and prosperity,” US secretary of state Mike Pompeo, one of the organizers of the summit, said Tuesday night. “We’ll talk about the Middle East peace plan, we’ll talk about … Counterterrorism, we’ll talk about how these countries can work together. This is a global coalition that is built to deliver on the important mission of reducing the risk that has emanated from the Middle East for far too long.”

Officials across the mullahs’ apparatus are already expressing growing worries over this initiative. Some voices are attempting to save face by claiming the conference has failed prior to its launch.

“The people of Iran have been the ones demanding the boycott of the Iranian regime since many years before western governments. The policy of blacklisting the Iranian regime’s criminal institutions and figureheads will be effective only when the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) is placed on the terror lists of the U.S. and the European Union as a whole entity,” Mrs. Rajavi continued.

“The IRGC supports wars and terrorist mercenary groups in the region; it runs the regime’s missile program, nuclear arms, and cyber activities, and it cracks down on the populace and plunders the country’s assets. The IRGC is the backbone propping up the clerical regime, and it must be immediately designated as a terrorist force,” the NCRI President-elect added, shedding light on the mullahs’ utter dependence on the IRGC.
