Iran: Give-away of the Caspian Sea an attempt to preserve the mullahs’ rule

Iran, Aug. 14, 2018 – In yet another attempt to preserve the faltering clerical regime, Hassan Rouhani, acting on orders from the Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, signed the Caspian Sea Treaty, which is against the Iranian nation’s interests.

Undermining the Iranian nation’s national interests, including one trillion dollars in damages from the unpatriotic war with Iraq, the destruction of the environment, the drying up of the nation’s water reserves, the plunder of the Iranian people’s wealth and its squander on exporting terrorism, warmongering, and nuclear and missile programs, are all familiar devices of the mullahs’ regime, which has declared safeguarding the totalitarian rule of the Vali-e faqih (absolute clerical ruler) as the absolute imperative.

Now, it is the turn of Caspian Sea, one of Iran’s greatest national treasures, which the anti-Iranian mullahs have given away in a bid to preserve their security and disgraceful rule.

Indeed, so unpalatable is the treaty, that even the regime’s experts and parliament deputies from different factions are describing it as another Turkmenchay Treaty, (according to which the control of the South Caucasus in 1828 was ceded to Russia).  

The state-run daily Etemad on August 12, 2018, quoted a Majlis Deputy as saying, “Given the timing and particular political circumstance, negotiations about our share of the Caspian Sea and similar issues do not serve our interests.” Another Majlis deputy said, “Rouhani has gone to Kazakhstan at a time when the legal provisions of the Caspian Sea are in doubt. Is it true that Iran’s 50 percent share has dropped to 11 percent? Is there another Turkmenchay on the way?”

The Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), a partner of Rouhani in this sell-out, defended him in its publication, Javan on August 13: “Expectations for favorable terms regarding our rights to profit from, or making use of the Caspian Sea’s reserves in ‘determining the borders’ and ‘setting a demarcation point’ are unrealistic.”

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, said: “For Khomeini, Khamenei and Rouhani, neither water, nor the land, nor the culture, nor the lives, nor the wealth of the Iranian people have any value. Only one thing matters: Preserving the rule of the mullahs, which Khomeini described as the ‘absolute imperative,’ and for which one can abrogate Islamic edicts, and first and foremost give away the land and water of Iran and its people and massacre its valiant children in the prisons.” She added “Indeed, what could an invader do that the mullahs have not done to Iran and the Iranian people. The mullahs are among the worst in Iran’s history.”
