Let's briefly discuss how #Iran's FM @JZarif, representing the world's leading state sponsor of terrorism, resorts to lies in response to today's sanctioning by the European Union.
15)
@JZarif claims the Iranian opposition MEK "killed 12000 Iranians" without providing any shred of decent evidence.

All the while, a French court ruling affirms the MEK's "right to resist tyrannical rule and political repression in its native Iran."

@JZarif claims the MEK is a terrorist organization.
The MEK was delisted from the UK, EU & US blacklists in 2009, 2011 & 2012 respectively.

And here's something interesting from the LA Times back in 1997.

@JZarif lies in saying the MEK "abetted Saddam's crimes against Iraqi Kurds."

Senior Iraqi Kurdish official in 1999:
"KDP can confirm that [MEK] were not involved in suppressing the Kurdish people neither during the uprising nor in its aftermath."

While #Iran's regime counts on Europe to help bypass U.S. sanctions, the EU is busy sanctioning Tehran's intelligence apparatus.

22)
In response to EU measures, #Iran's regime resorts to its known tactic of threats.

My take:
Enough is enough. Europe must end its appeasement of Tehran.
