Message of Peace and Friendship

February 11, 2020

Dear Mr. President

            Subject:  Message of Peace and Friendship

On this day of the sad 41st anniversary of the terrorist and corrupt regime of the Islamic Republic of Iran, we would like to bring to your attention a strong and historical message from our suffering compatriots in Iran, who extend a hand of friendship to the people of the United States of America.

While the Islamic Republic is after hostility and confrontation with the United States and the Free World, the Iranian people desire, more than ever, peace and friendship with the same.

We believe that our homeland, Iran and the United States have strong common strategic interests. As the Iranian people are not allowed to freely choose their government, our countries have not even had diplomatic relationship in the past 40 years. Indeed, the leaders of the theocratic regime do not work for the Iranian national interest. Their main objective is to export their fanatical ideology to the entire region and beyond. To achieve their goal, this regime needs to be the enemy of the United States, Israel, and all democracies across the world.

However, more and more, the Iranian people are demonstrating their determination to be part of the free world and be respectful of democratic values. This desire for freedom is best exemplified by the daily struggles of Iranian women, workers, students, and religious minorities who engage in peaceful civil disobedience and protests while facing mass murder, imprisonments, and torture by regime’s thugs and security apparatus.

Mr. President, we would like to warmly thank you for the unprecedent support to the Iranian people that you and your administration provide.  From our perspective, the best policy to bring back peace and stability in the Middle-East is to support the Iranians’ national self-determination for a democratic government. The solution is neither war, nor maintaining the status quo. As you have so rightly said, the Iranian people are what the regime fears the most.

Therefore, we respectfully request your support for the will of the Iranian people to be able to choose their destiny through free, fair and transparent elections in accordance with article 21 of the Declaration of Human Rights.

Thank you for your attention to this important matter.

Respectfully yours,

Iran National Council for Free Elections
