EU-Iran business forum collapsing amid withdrawals from Europeans
“EU acquiescence of the Iranian regime’s atrocity in and outside Iran by promoting business with Iran will only worsen the regime’s behavior"
FEBRUARY 28, 2021

The EU-Iran Business Forum slated to start on Monday is again marred by outrage over promoting commerce with a regime in Tehran that has carried out violations of the nuclear deal and widespread repression of Iranians, including a regime shooting spree of protestors in the Sistan and Baluchestan province. Reports emerged on Sunday that EU officials, including the EU’s chief diplomat Josep Borrell, withdrew their participation from the controversial three day event. “Iran has the highest rate of executions per capita. In many cases the death penalties are executed after flagrantly unfair trials marred by #torture-tainted confessions. Therefore we call on the Flag of European Union leadership to condition relations with Flag of Iran on its observance of human rights,”tweeted Anna Elżbieta Fotyga, a Polish member of the European Parliament.
