Rajavi: Nuclear talks with Iran unlikely to yield change

Maryam Rajavi, the president-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, said on Wednesday that the negotiations with Iran's regime are doomed to fail.

Rajavi said that Grand Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Hosseini Khamenei, the leader of Iran, seeks nuclear weapons and would never forgo the opportunity to obtain them. She said the only incentive package Khamenei will agree to is one that includes the acquisition of a nuclear weapon.

Rajavi said that after 10 years of providing incentive packages and 40 rounds of negotiations, it should be obvious that the regime is not willing to accept an agreement on its nuclear program. She cited constant violations of U.N. Security Council resolutions and the NCRI's exposure of the Arak, Natanz and Fordo projects.

She said that the window for negotiations with the regime is already closed and that continuing the negotiations is giving Iran time to acquire a nuclear bomb and deceive the world community.

"Strengthening the sanctions and making them comprehensive is a very necessary step to prevent this regime from acquiring a nuclear bomb, but the final and real solution to prevent the nightmare of the mullahs becoming nuclear, is regime change by the Iranian people and the Iranian resistance," Rajavi said. "Time is running out."
