  • While the international community, as well as the Rouhani government, wish to focus on the nuclear deal first and foremost, the population in Iran is systematically repressed and rightfully looks to Europe to make sure they are not forgotten. These and other citizen initiatives in Iran, and with support of diaspora in Europe, deserve our support and attention. Instead of turning inward and focusing on our own elections, we must make sure the EU continues to be outspoken against the abuses of the rights of political prisoners and ordinary citizens
