The foreign policy establishment in the UK and throughout the world should be ready for collective action through punitive sanctions and through support for the Iranian dissidents who want to establish a free, democratic and non-nuclear Iran.

The Iranian regime has been a serious and growing menace to international peace and tranquillity for quite some time; and it remains to be one. A rift between the US and Europe regarding the fate of the nuclear agreement (the JCPOA) should not prevent them adopting a firm and robust policy vis-à-vis Iran.

Sir David Amess MP sent the following letter to the Editor-in-Chief of The Huffington Post, Polly Curtis, on 8 December 2017:

Dear Ms Curtis,

It is regrettable that The Huffington Post has allowed its respected platform to be exploited by Massoud Khodabandeh to repeat the Iranian regime’s baseless accusations against Iran’s democratic opposition group, the People’s Mojahedin Organisation of Iran (PMOI/MEK).

Why a nuclear deal must not mean Iran gets a free pass on human rights

President Trump deserves credit for his first-ever address to the U.N. General Assembly last week. While his comments on Iran made many of the gathered world leaders and diplomats feel uneasy, his observations were actually spot on.

Securing an international inquiry into the 1988 massacre of thousands of political prisoners will win over the Iranian people.

Earlier in September, the UN Secretary General sent the latest report of the Special Rapporteur on Iran’s human rights to the General Assembly for discussion. The August 14 report provides a detailed account of a series of serious abuses that were carried out by the Iranian authorities in the past year year.
