We have heard, and we will hear more from speakers, for the first time in the 8 years, since I've been coming to this event. We have heard and we will hear that finally the stars seem to be aligned to accomplish what we all want to accomplish, which is the downfall of the mullahs regime.

 And even as we hear that the economic rot in Tehran, and the political rot in Tehran finally matches the moral rot that has always been at the core of the mullahs’ regime.

 and as we pause to thank Mrs. Rajavi, who has devoted decades of her life to bringing this about and the people who died, and the people who were mutilated to help bring it about, and the residents of Camp Ashraf, who suffered tremendously, and the Albanians, who welcomed them gallantly. We all are aware and you are aware, and your presence here shows you're aware, that there is nothing inevitable in human affairs. We hope that the mullahs will topple, but it's going to take more effort. But you are here to show that that effort is going to be forthcoming.

 And I promise you, I promise you in my own behalf and in behalf of the others in the American delegation, that we know that and that our efforts will not stop either until the day comes when we can greet each other in a peaceful and free Iran.

 Thank you very much.
