The reported assassination of Iranian scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh is an attempt by warmongers in the region to push the Middle East into another military conflict. Faced with an incoming Biden administration which has expressed its intentions to re-enter the Iran Deal and work towards peace, the forces for war are attempting to trap this administration and prevent these efforts by heightening tensions.
Furthermore, assassination of scientists is an abhorrent and egregious act that violates all international norms.
As such, the Iranian Canadian Congress condemns this reckless and illegal assassination.
The Canadian government must use all diplomatic means to prevent a military confrontation in the region. Canada must stand against war and against acts designed to spark war such as this assassination.
