I’m honored to join you for the International Convention for a Free Iran. The regime is a proven adversary and the world’s largest state sponsor of terror. Now Iran’s president-elect is a mass murderer committed to suppressing dissident. President Biden needs to make it clear that the United States will not ease sanctions and will ensure consequences for the regime’s dangerous actions. The regime should also know that they have an opportunity to become productive members of the world community and bring peace and prosperity to their people. The choice is theirs. We all want peace. Today and every day, the United States must align with those fighting for freedom and democracy, clearly denounce terrorism, and stand up against those that do not respect human rights.
