Iran Update



The proposal by Iraqi Foreign Minister for formation of a committee involving Iraq, Iran and International Committee of Red Cross with regards to Camp Ashraf and the faith of 3400 Iranian defenseless refugees living there is unacceptable.

It is a disgrace to engage the clerical regime which its only objective is to eliminate residents of Ashraf into any committee which is suppose to find a lasting solution for the situation in Camp Ashraf. 

A possible participation of the ICRC, if true, is appalling and is strongly condemned. The ICRC should unequivocally and publicly reject such proposal which would only be at the service of the Iranian regime and Nouri al-Maliki's government to justify their crimes against residents of Asrhaf. 

The Iranian and Iraqi governments are already responsible for the killing of many residents and are baring any kind of aid or monitoring group to enter the camp.  Just two weeks ago, an American Congressional delegation, headed by Congressman Dana Rohrabacher, was prevented to visit the camp to assess the situation there first hand.  Earlier in April a delegation from European Parliament was denied access.

Any plan the two governments devise has one and only one goal and that is to massacre the entire population of the camp in which any international body should refrain from participating.


We are delighted to present you with the current issue of Iran Update, a publication of International Solidarity for Democratic Change in Iran (ISDCI).
