Reza and Yasmine Pahlavi’s Wedding Anniversary

In a presentation at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy in December 2018, Pahlavi called for non-military support of those in Iran who were trying to replace the Islamist regime with a secular democracy. According to a news report, he was “not openly calling for the restoration of the Peacock Throne … He casts himself more as a symbol than a politician, but has called himself ‘ready to serve my country'”.
