In the European Parliament (2011-2014) I worked as a Chair of Iran delegation and a member of the Committees for Foreign Affairs (AFET) and Security and Defence (SEDE). I was a Spokesperson on Security and Defence for the Greens in the EP. I was also a substitute member of the Russia delegation and of the NATO delegation.
Here are a few of the issues
I focus on in my work:
The European Idea
The European Parliament should actively contribute to developing further EU's common security and defence policy (CSDP). European defence should be a common priority for the member states.
Disarmament process should include tactical nuclear weapons. Russian and NATO tactical nuclear weapons should be removed from Europe.
Middle East and nuclear security
I strongly support the idea of a nuclear free Middle East. I believe dialogue and effective diplomacy is key to resolving security issues in the region.
The EU and Russia
The EU needs to formulate a proactive and constructive policy towards Russia.
