Lawmakers applaud opening of delisted group's DC office

“All you have to do is look at Tehran's actions today to understand that concessions to an undemocratic, oppressive regime do not make good foreign policy. I hope your office will help advocate for a peaceful transition by the people of Iran that throws out [Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali] Khamenei and his corrupt regime and brings in a new day of democracy and freedom. Congratulations again on the reopening of your office.”
