We are all in agreement you deserve to be free and independent and democratic. That is for sure.
Well, unfortunately, I am very sorry but I am feeling lonely after an army of MPs, British MP, American MP and the next German MP, but you are in France and thank you for coming.
So I'm very pleased to be with you. For, I don't know, how many times but every year, it is a sort of family meeting now for democracy and for a free Iran. So first and I will be very short allow me to say some sentences in English then after, to turn to France.
I want to congratulate and I pay respect to this fantastic Albanian people and the representative of the Albanian government, because they were the only one to welcome the people from Ashraf and Liberty. So thank you for that, Albanian people.
People of Iran have been suppressed for 38 years by autocratic regime, Islamic extremism and fundamentalism. Meanwhile, we are coming, why? Because, its current form it started with the regime of the Ayatollah. The regime of the Ayatollah is the base of extremism.
So, people of Iran are very right and deserve to get at least a better regime. They deserve to have freedom and democracy. They deserve to have free election through which they can elect their true representatives and not those who have been elected by the supreme leader. And as they all say that this podium, change in Iran will open the way to end the extremism in all the region, the extremism born in the name of Islam throughout the region. This is not because Islam is a good ground for terrorism these people are using Islam as a tool for extremism and murdering.
So, please you have not only your role and the necessity of changing Iran, but be changing Iran is certainly the beginning of a real change for democracy in all the region.
And another time, I want also to congratulate Madame Rajavi. Because it is always a lesson and if I was very prudent I will say a lesson of charm as I can say so it's a lesson of political truth talking in the name of the Mojahedin. Madam Rajvi is a good example this is not only the good example but also the beginning of a real perspective to change the regime for democracy. An Islamic lady to be President of Iran should be the beginning of a huge immense change so all of the time. Madam Rajavi another time congratulation and thank you. Muslim were calling for gender equality separation of religion and state we have the example of what Madam Rajavi said and another time for the third time thank you.
