An Ahwaz conference shed light on Iran’s terrorism, at the international and regional levels, and the forms of oppression and persecution carried out by the Iranian regime against Ahwazian and non-Persian people, said head of the Arab Struggle Movement for Liberation of Ahwaz (ASLMA) Habib Jaber.

He made his remarks to Asharq Al-Awsat on the sidelines of the “With Ahwaz in the Face of the Iranian Terrorism” conference in Copenhagen, Denmark over the weekend held on the 19th anniversary of the movement's founding.

Jaber stressed that the conference urged European countries to support the Danish position in regards to Iran’s terrorism and human rights in Iran.

Last month, Danish authorities announced that they had foiled an assassination attempt against a group of political activists opposed to the Iranian regime, headed by Jaber and two of his companions.

Jaber said the measures taken by Danish authorities following the disclosure of the Iranian intelligence apparatus’s plot were “courageous and strict.”

He pointed out that holding the conference “in light of the continuation of the Iranian regime threats, poses the most important challenge to the Danish security authorities,” adding that it is a chance to introduce the Danish and European public to the Iranian regime’s terrorism.

Denmark took strict security measures to protect the conference.

On European interest in following the activities of the conference, Jaber said that “this helps us uncover the reality of Iranian terrorism, not only in the Middle East, but also in Europe.”

This is one of the necessary steps that will worsen the relationship between Iran and the European Union, he remarked.

“Iranian terrorist threats against us or movements opposed to it do not affect our work, especially since everyone is aware that this regime will fall in the near future.”

The conference’s closing statement pointed to very complicated international and regional circumstances that were escalated due to the regime’s terrorist activities.

The conference kicked off Saturday with a speech by Jaber, who gave an overview of the history of ASLMA and “the Iranian occupation of Ahwaz.”
