My vote in favour of the Howitt resolution “EU strategy towards Iran after the nuclear agreement” is conditioned by the following:
Nothing in the text should be understood now or in the future as tending to encourage the EU or its member states to include regime change as a component of their policy towards Iran.
Evident or implied criticism of the Iranian government’s internal and external policies should be taken as defining the parameters within which the European Union will undertake cooperation on all fronts with Iran.
In no way should it be taken to mean that the EU proposes to intervene in Iran’s internal processes to influence decisions and policies there.
Even when the EU makes critical submissions to Iranian authorities about their decisions and policies, such submissions will be made in good faith.
It is up to the Iranian people to decide about their national systems.
