The former NY mayor who is now Trump's personal lawyer, was addressing a conference of the Paris-based National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), an umbrella bloc of opposition groups in exile that seek an end to Shi'ite Muslim clerical rule in Iran.

"The only way to safety in the region is to replace the dictatorship with a democracy and that has to be our goal", Gingrich told the Free Iran rally, organised by exiled opponents including the former rebel group the People's Mujahideen, which is banned in Iran.

"Other than this, we will only follow our own national interests", Turkey's Economy Minister Nihat Zeybekci said as quoted by daily Hurriyet, adding that "we will pay attention so our friend Iran will not face any unfair actions". "The wheels of change have started turning".

Iranian officials contend there is no objective reason for the currency crash, but the protests clearly demonstrate the public's lack of faith in the regime, which only exacerbates the country's economic instability.

Maryam Rajavi, the leader of the People's Mujahdeen of Iran (MEK) and president-elect of the NCRI, has been accused of being a ruthless leader of a cult which militarily supported Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein, but supporters say she hopes to liberalise Iran through changes such as the abolition of the death penalty.

However, Iniesta's name will forever go down in Spanish folklore as one of the greatest Spaniards to have played for his country. Asked about De Gea, Maradona told Marca: 'Yes, I like him, although he's conceded a couple of goals.

Ayatollah Khamenei didn't name any specific nations in the so-called coalition but alleged it is imposing economic pressure on Iran to "separate the nation from the system".

At the same time, oil importers including Japan, South Korea, and India, as well as European countries have said they will continue buying Iranian crude.

In his address to the rally of MKO, who for decades was listed as a terrorist organization in the USA and Europe and is widely seen as a personality cult, Giuliani said the fall of the government in Tehran would be brought about by economic isolation.

Gingrich blasted countries attempting to find ways to allow their companies to keep operating in Iran under the threat of penalties for U.S. sanctions-busting.

According to Press TV, the USA government has announced support for a group of individuals who forced shop owners at Tehran Grand Bazaar to shut down last week. "We need to insist that they join the sanctions once again".

"Freedom is right around the corner", he added of the recent protests in Iran.

Gingrich, Giuliani and other United States politicians have been well paid to speak at the annual Paris rally in recent years. The MKO have been known for paying very high fees, particularly to such figures as Giuliani and Trump's national security advisor John Bolton, among others.

"But the chance of a regime change is zero because Iranians do not want another revolution and are sceptical it would be for the better".

Mr Trump's lawyer also told reporters that although he no longer continues to, during Mr Trump's campaign he raised the case of this opposition group with Mr Trump and that he hoped the leader of the movement would be visiting the USA for a tour within 12 months.

Already French companies Total and Peugeot, for example, have said they will pull out of Iran rather than risk being shut out of the USA financial system, as Washington threatens to use the dollar's reserve currency status to punish anyone who gets in the way of its ramped-up Iran policy.

Mr Jadwat likened the Court's decision to the ruling which upheld Japanese-American internment during World War Two. The Supreme Court allowed it to go largely into effect in December while the legal challenge continued.

Reacting to US President Donald Trump's continuing rhetoric, Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has said that Washington was exerting economic pressure in a bid to turn his country's people against the government but such efforts are futile. However, the protests earlier this year took place largely in Iran's provinces rather than in Tehran.
