A government that uses tactics of terror and systematic suppression, arrests, imprisonment, torture and murder of its opponents from all walks of life, cannot and does not have any legitimacy to govern, or to conduct any negotiations towards peace.

The New Iran, Paniranist Party Abroad, Secular Democrat Party, Peace and Humanity, Iran National Liberation Front, Iranian Lawyers Association and a number of respected political activists opposing the Islamic regime in Iran, have released an Open Letter warning the western democracies and the United Nations that any negotiations, deals or agreements, political or economic, open or secret, with the Islamic Republic in Iran (IRI) will only prolong regime's power-grip, and is therefore, condemned and declared void by the Iranian people.

In this Open Letter the signatories warn the world that “While the world’s attention on Iran is focused on formulating a deal to limit the Islamic regime in pursuing their development of nuclear weapons, the political suppression and abuse of human rights inside Iran has reached a new alarming level. Imprisonment, torture and murder of opponents of the regime have reached a new peak, and the world community is not paying enough attention to the atrocities being conducted by this regime. While the European Union along with a few other countries are trying to structure a new framework to bypass economic sanctions against the Islamic Republic of Iran (“IRI”), the tyrannical regime of Iran is actively pursuing its quest for terrorism, not only in the region but also in Europe and other parts of the world, as we have witnessed in the past forty years reign of Islamic regime, and the recent events in Europe.”

This coalition of IRI opposition groups and political and human rights activists argue that IRI does not have the legitimacy to represent Iran at the United Nations, explains the bi-governmental system of governance in Iran and strongly advocate additional “Smart Political Sanctions” against the Islamic regime: “The Iranian people have strongly demanded, without any act of violence, that they do not want to replace this tyrannical Islamic regime by another group of unpopular, and undemocratic totalitarian Islamic clans. The Iranian people are seeking a non-violent, and orderly Regime Change to establish a free, democratic and secular form of governance in Iran. We, therefore, strongly advocate additional smart political sanctions against the Islamic regime, similar to the sanctions that were applied against South Africa during the apartheid era, such as not allowing the regime’s cadre and high ranking officials and their relatives to travel abroad or to transfer funds they have plunder from the Iranian people to their bank accounts abroad.”

The Open Letter emphasizes that “The new democratic Iran will not need and will not develop or use any nuclear arsenal”, that “The most dangerous tool the Islamist regime has in its arsenal is TERRORISM, which is being pursued across the globe, and declares that “Any negotiations, deals or agreements, political or economic, open or secret, with this Islamic regime will only prolong IRI’s power-grip on the nation, and is therefore, condemned and declared VOID by Iranian people.”
