Some members of families of martyrs of terrorist attacks in Iran called Monday on Europe to stop supporting the terrorist group of Mujahedin-e-Khalq Organization (MKO) that has assassinated 17,000 Iranians.
Zohreh Elahian, chairman of Iran’s Majlis (Parliament) human right committee, recalled the martyrs families’ demand at a conference held in Tehran to mark the International Day of Remembrance and Tribute to the Victims of Terrorism on August 21.
Director of the United Nations Information Center (UNIC) in the Islamic Republic of Iran, Inger Marie, and some other Iranian parliamentarians were present in the conference.
Elahian said at the conference that the Majlis human rights committee is after supporting those families and helping their voice of oppression be heard worldwide.
Unfortunately, the so-called advocates of the human rights are also the main supporters of the terrorist groups, Elahian added.
She further highlighted the special role the parliaments play in supporting the families of the martyrs of assassinations.
Then, she censured certain European countries which support the MKO and let them hold their meetings in the European states.
Referring to the January 2020 assassination of Lt General Qassem Soleimani by the US forces in Iraq, Elahian said that the Majlis has been following up the case in the international communities.
The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Qods Force commander Lieutenant General Soleimani and Abu Mahdi al-Mohandes, the acting commander of the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) – known as the Hashd al-Shaabi – were assassinated in Baghdad by the US attack on January 3, 2020.
As Elahian underlined, the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) has the great capacity to help weaken bases of terrorists and defend victims of terrorism.
August 21 is designated as International Day of Remembrance and Tribute to the Victims of Terrorism, the move is an initiative made by Iran and accepted by the UN.
