An international conference titled “Mullahs’ regime in crises, explosive situation in Iran, meddling in other countries” was held in Paris, where several dignitaries from the US, France, Canada, EU and the Middle East addressed the Iranian situation.

Among the speakers was General James Conway who was the Commanding General of the US Marine Corps from 2006 to 2010. He was commander of 90,000 US and British forces in Iraq and served two tours in Iraq. During his time there, some of the most important officials in the Trump administration were his subordinates.

Maryam Rajavi, the President of the National Council of Resistance of Iran was the keynote speaker of the conference. Rajavi said as the international community is recognizing the need to stand up to the Iranian regime’s malign activities, the mullahs are besieged with crisis at home and public discontent is expanding, putting the regime’s overthrow within reach.

According to Rajavi, the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) has kept the mullahs in power through unbridled suppression, devouring the Iranian economy and increasing its meddling in the affairs of Middle East nations.

“The IRGC is tasked with protecting the mullahs’ medieval religious dictatorship through absolute suppression… it has tightened its grips on the lion’s share of the Iranian economy,” Rajavi said.

She added, “instead of making investments in the country, it is pouring Iran’s wealth and revenues into the inferno of repression and terrorism. The IRGC’s special role, however, is confronting the Iranian people’s uprisings that are waiting in the wings.”

Some of the key speakers at the conference included John Baird, former Foreign Minister of Canada, Ambassador Lincoln Bloomfield, former Assistant US Secretary of State, Rama Yade, former French Minister for Human Rights and George Sabra, President of the Syrian National Council among others.

Al Arabiya conducted an interview with General Conway during the conference.
