NCRI is an organization we have severe problems with. This organization supports violence and opposes the organizations loyal to peaceful change. Instead of talking about a particular group, we believe that Iranians should determine their future themselves
The US is very well aware that the terrorist MEK has no influence Iran despite all its maneuvers under the title of “Iranian National Congress or claiming to have the internal uprisings in Iran under its own control and … The US is also aware of the violence-seeking nature of this irrational group. These can be proved by looking at the comments of Adam Ereli, State Department spokesman, interviewed by Radio Farda. Two supporters of MKO questioned Mr. Ereli. Note the answers. A listener in London: What’s Mr. Ereli’s viewpoint on the opponents who are working in the framework of National Council of Iran. Why don’t they support it? Mr. Ereli: NCRI is an organization we have severe problems with. This organization supports violence and opposes the organizations loyal to peaceful change. Instead of talking about a particular group, we believe that Iranians should determine their future themselves. We support Iranians’ will for change. People now want free participation in government; they want economical reforms and opportunities. There are now the factors for change; it’s something which has risen from the people of Iran. we support working with people in Iran, working to boost civil society, media and organizing the change. Contrary to your words, we don’t believe that these are dreams. A listener in London: Hello Mr. Ereli. I live in London. Thanks for your firm position against Iran’s nuclear program. I heard that you were talking about forces in Iran. I agree with you. But the degree of suppressing them is so high that the main issue is now getting rid of the tyrannical rulers in Iran. Regarding the speeches of president George Bush (who said the US stands beside pro-democracy people) and regarding recent pro-democracy Iranians convention in Washington, I ask you why the US doesn’t support the NCRI? Mr. Ereli: supporting this or that movement is not the issue. The issue is to support those in Iran who act. There are some movements outside Iran which we are concerned about their ties with terrorism and this issue forms our view toward the groups. In general, the US supports freedom-seeking movements inside Iran.
