Let me extend my greetings and gratitude to the free people of Iran and to the National Council of Resistance and the combatant lady, Maryam Rajavi, and to the participants of today’s program. On this occasion, I would like to speak about the continuation of the clear and impudent meddling of the Iranian regime, which is done aggressively in the region.

The exposed and condemned interference of the clerical regime in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Bahrain, and Yemen has added to the complexity of the problems, preventing the possibility of achieving peaceful and negotiated solutions. This regime wants nothing but to impose its domination and hegemony and to defeat the people by force and violence, and by means of supporting armed militias such as Hezbollah and the Houthis and other terrorists.

The regime continues to support the Houthi militias in Yemen unabatedly, especially since the Houthi coup and the takeover of Yemen by force of arms. The regime supports them by launching ballistic missiles and explosive drones within Yemen and against Yemen’s neighbors, in addition to threatening the most important international waterways such as Bab-el-Mandeb and the Strait of Hormuz and so on.

Khomeini’s expansionist policy has taken a hostile and malevolent path with everyone. It is the highest level of violence and the use of false and misleading slogans to cover up those lies and deceptions. Some people were deceived in the past by the pretense of the Iranian regime’s policies and their hollow claims, but what is happening today is that the free people of Iran are rising up every day, giving martyrs, and making sacrifices and the regime is rotting from within. Just as the representatives of the Iranian regime, such as Hezbollah and the Houthis, are defeated and retreat, we see the situation in Lebanon and Yemen.

The important question we must ask today is what we can do to stop and rein in the Iranian regime. While the regime is trying to create crises and futile wars, and in spite of various efforts by some who are optimistic about containing the regime and giving it a chance and expressing their good faith, I believe that there remains only one solution which would eradicate this deviant policy from its roots, and that is to stand by the Iranian resistance.

We are confident that the free people of Iran, who want peace and stability, will soon prevail, and with their victory, Iranian interference will cease.
