Iraq: Call for early elections after the formation of a new government of technocrats

The European Iraqi Freedom Association (EIFA) supports the formation of a technocratic government in Iraq and stressesthe following two points for the establishment of peace, democracy and prosperity in this country:

First: Dismissing agents and proxies of the Iranian regime in the new composition of the government as well as in the military and security forces. This must include pro-Iran militias which have been the main force in creating tensions and sectarian war. 

Second: Holding early elections under the supervision of the United Nations, with no interference and influence by the Iranian regime and its proxies.  The 2014 elections, under Nouri Al-Maliki’s jurisdiction, by no means represented the democratic will of the Iraqi people, because he was a puppet of the Iranian regime and did their bidding.

The international community should act decisively against the presence of the Iranian military in Syria

Iran's army entering the war in Syria is a blatant violation of international law and must be met with an overwhelming response and action by the international community. 

With the Syrian revolution against the dictatorship of Bashar al-Assad entering its sixth year, Tehran has escalated the presence in Syria of its Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), together with regular Iranian military units, who are waging a brutal campaign against the Syrian people and the moderate opposition.

 In recent weeks, a significant number of special commandos of Iran's regular army have been killed in Syria, pointing to their extensive presence in that conflict. The failure of the IRGC, especially in the Aleppo's zone and their massive casualties in recent months in Syria, has reportedly caused Iran's Supreme Leader Khamenei to dispatch his regular army to bolster pro Assad forces in this criminal war. 

In addition to the IRGC and the Iranian army, tens of thousands of Iraqi criminal militias, including Afghan and Pakistani mercenaries, have been engaged in the massacre of the Syrian people under the command of Iran.
