London, Dec. 23 – The following is the text of a statement by Iranian opposition leader Maryam Rajavi issued after the United Nations Security Council voted unanimously to slap sanctions on Iran because of its refusal to suspend its uranium enrichment activities:

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi welcomes UN Security Council resolution, calls for imposition of comprehensive sanctions against mullahs’ regime
The ultimate solution is democratic change by the Iranian people and their Resistance

The Iranian Resistance’s President-elect, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, welcomed the adoption of a resolution by the UN Security Council against the mullahs’ regime and called it the first necessary step towards preventing the ruling religious fascism in Iran from obtaining a nuclear bomb.

She reiterated that giving more time to the terrorist mullahs will bring them a step closer to obtaining a nuclear bomb. She called on the UN Security Council to ignore the mullahs’ threats and blackmail and impose comprehensive arms, technological, diplomatic and oil sanctions against the regime.

Mrs. Rajavi added that the clerical regime’s nuclear projects were completely against the interests of the Iranian people and that an absolute majority of Iranians supported the imposition of comprehensive sanctions.

She emphasized that, contrary to the mullahs’ claims, the regime is extremely vulnerable to such sanctions. Mrs. Rajavi said that the regime was weak and engulfed in internal turmoil but had benefited from the West’s policy of indulgence.

Mrs. Rajavi concluded that the effective solution to the present crisis in Iran was democratic change by the Iranian people and their Resistance. The Iranian people have demonstrated the desire for change through increasing protests against the ruling religious fascism. Therefore, in addition to sanctions, a correct policy vis-à-vis the Iranian regime requires lending support to the Iranian people and their Resistance as they strive to bring about democratic change in Iran.
