Alaeddin Boroujerdi said, “This decision by the European Parliament delegation proved that they lack the power to make serious decisions [independently] of Zionist pressure and elements outside this parliament.” He added that the delegation had requested the visit to Iran long ago, and Zionist elements had repeatedly vowed to block the visit. “Some parties participating in the European Parliament delegation that are more easily pressed surrendered to Zionist pressure, and finally, the delegation cancelled the visit.” He said that the “excuses” made by the delegation were tactical moves meant to deflect their weakness and the fact that they obey Zionist orders. He noted that Tehran and the European Parliament team had an agreement on a visit with no preconditions. “When a parliament cannot maintain its independence, it naturally lacks the potential for negotiation and [mutual] understanding.” Head of Iran-EU Parliamentary Friendship Group, Kazem Jalali blasted the European Parliament for dropping the visit to Tehran, calling it an “unwise” decision made under the influence of the Zionist lobby.
