Left-wing members of the European Parliament are pressing ahead with plans to visit Iran while the European Union prepares to impose tough new sanctions on the theocratic regime over its suspected nuclear weapons program.
Struan Stevenson, a leading member of the European Parliament, sounded desperate as he appealed to the Obama administration to prevent a "human catastrophe" among Iranian exiles in Iraq.
A leading member of the European Parliament on Tuesday appealed to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton to disavow remarks by a U.S. diplomat dealing with imperiled Iranian dissidents in Iraq.
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton will give "a gift to the mullahs" who oppress the Iranian people, if she fails to remove the Iranian resistance from the U.S. blacklist of terrorist groups, a visiting member of the European Parliament said Tuesday.
British and European leaders are questioning Tony Blair's role as Middle East peace envoy following reports about the former British prime minister's business links to Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi and the Middle East.
Mr. Stevenson, as president of the European Parliament's Delegation for Relations with Iraq, said the rumors are enough to make him suspicious of Mr. Blair's motivations in the Middle East.
Mr. Blair "has certainly been riding two horses," Mr. Stevenson said, mentioning his role as peace envoy and his business-advising deals, including those with Tesco and JPMorgan. "And he's earning a lot in the meantime."
