The Iranian regime’s incoming foreign minister, Hossein Amir Abdollahian has once again confessed his support of terrorism regarding the regime’s foreign policy.
In a session of the Majlis (parliament) last Sunday, Abdollahian, who has been nominated and destined for the Foreign Minister position in the administration of the regime’s new president, Ebrahim Raisi, professed his support of the ‘resistance front’, the name used by the mullahs’ clerical regime to refer to their many proxies’ terrorist groups, based across the Middle East region.
The regime is currently funding, training, and providing logistics support to more than a dozen terrorist groups in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, and Yemen.
Abdollahian had made his comments in a speech during the meeting of the parliament, as officials were showing their support towards his appointment to his new role as Raisi’s top diplomat. His will to push terrorist policies comes as no surprise, considering his close relationship with the former leader of the IRGC’s Quds Force and the mastermind behind the regime’s terrorist activities, Qassem Soleimani, who was killed in January 2020 during a drone attack in Iraq.
He previously held the role of Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs under the previous administration, so he is no stranger to the regime’s policies.
Amir Abdollahian has a long history of enabling the regime’s terrorist policies in Iraq and other countries of the region. And he makes no secret of his ties to the regime’s terrorism apparatus.
Abdollahian announced, in an earlier meeting with the parliament’s culture commission, that he ‘cooperated with Soleimani in the foreign policy domain’ and that he will ‘continue Soleimani’s path’.
The regime’s diplomacy is closely controlled by the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) and its foreign terror arm the Quds Force, a fact that regime officials have made no secret of.
The former Foreign Minister of the regime, Mohammad Javad Zarif highlighted in a recent interview that the regime’s foreign policy is heavily dominated by IRGC and that 98 percent of the diplomatic achievements, regarding the regime, were attained by the Quds Force and, specifically, Soleimani himself.
Hassan Rouhani, the regime’s former president spoke at a cabinet meeting on April 8, 2021, seemingly confirming that the regime’s diplomacy is based around terrorism. He said that from his 32-year experience in the Supreme National Security Council, ‘the frontline and diplomacy are two arms’ of the mullahs’ regime. During his speech, Rouhani went on to say, “If anyone believes that either the frontline of the negotiations must-win, then I must say that their words are incorrect.”
Many of the regime’s senior diplomats and embassy staff were members of the Quds Force and reported to Soleimani, including Assadollah Assadi, a Vienna-based diplomat who is currently serving 20 years in prison for a failed attempt to bomb a major rally of the Iranian resistance in France in 2018.
