Paris-Maryam Rajavi, President of the “People’s Mujahedin of Iran” party, said that the Iranian regime is founded on three main pillars for it to prevail. The three principals are assembling a nuclear deterrent, absolute oppression of the interior and the export of terrorism and extremism to the outside.

Rajavi, in an interview with Asharq Al-Awsat newspaper, said believes that Tehran’s strategy is established on the extent of interference it manages in affairs of other countries, the incitement of war and the exporting of terrorism; however, all the regime’s plots have failed after the Decisive Storm.

“The Iranian regime can be defeated once and for all in Bahrain if it was confronted with a decisive alliance formed by regional countries,” Rajavi said. She mentioned that the Iranian regime is close to drowned in the swamps of the Syrian civil war.

Rajavi clarified the connection entailing that the Iranian regime would collapse consequentially should Syrian President Bashar al-Assad be toppled, which is why Iran has been stretching out an arm’s length for keeping Assad in rule.

“If Assad falls out of authority in Damascus, then the Iranian regime will evidently follow and collapse in Tehran,”Rajavi said.

“It’s dying,” Rajavi used to express the current state-of-affairs on the Iranian regime; “It has faced defeat in Yemen. Fronts in Syria and Iraq are in effective escalation, the regime has sent 60 thousand Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) soldiers and affiliated militia to fight in Syria,” Rajavi added.

When asked about nuclear danger looming in the horizon, Rajavi explained that the Iranian regime has only “temporarily” lost its ability on manufacturing a nuclear arsenal and will soon resume what it had long planned for.

“The Iranian regime is skilled with the art of keeping to its confidentiality and vagueness of its activities. It hasn’t revealed all its cards, and one must say that the international community was not firm enough, because the international community could have taken away everything from the regime,” Rajavi said.

On the topic of the recent ballistic missile activities and violations, Rajavi clarified that all corners to the Iranian governing system are the same, seeking internal oppression of the people and terrorizing regional nations.

The missile program, according to Rajavi, is an attempt for establishing missiles capable of carrying nuclear warheads, as a part of a plan on frightening the region and raising the morals of its supporters.
