Tirana, March 23 (Tirana Echo) – Rudy Giuliani, former mayor of New York and White House informal adviser has visited Albania this week to celebrate Nowruz Day with Iran’s resistance Mojahedin movement, telling them Iran’s regime has a future in hell.
After meeting Albania’s top political leaders, Giuliani was received by Maryam Rajavi and over 2000 members of the People’s Mujahedin of Iran (PMOI) who have recently been relocated to Albania and continue seeking to overthrow the Iranian government.
During a special gathering of the PMOI in the outskirts of Tirana, Giuliani, after thanking Albania’s authorities for hosting the movement, read a statement by President Trump on the occasion of Sultan Nowruz day and assured its members the US will continue to support their cause in toppling the mullah’s regime in Teheran.
“I have a simple message for the regime: their future is in hell. The current situation in Iran and the uprising is a challenging time for your brothers and sisters in Iran. And we lost many of your brothers and sisters in Iraq in camp Liberty and Ashraf.” – Guliani said to a fully packed hall in Tirana.
Alongside Giuliani, the Mojahedins were also greeted by Albania’s Minister of Diaspora Pandeli Majko, MP Elona Gjebrea and the head of the Republican Party Fatmir Mediu.
Last year, Senator John McCain also visited the dissident group, congratulating Albania’s government for allowing the remaining members of the Iranian resistance to settle in Albania after their lives were put in danger in camps Ashraf and Liberty in Iraq.
The U.S. had previously listed the group as a terrorist organization for past alleged attacks on Americans, for which MEK has denied having any role. One senior official in the Clinton administration described the designation as a gesture of goodwill to then-Iranian president Mohammad Khatami. The MEK was removed from the list in 2012.
