MKO presence in Iraq illegal in every way: Iraqi MP Advisor

Al-Zuhairi said the US and Europe keep labeling the MKO as a terrorist group, insisting that “they support the cult, however, as they plan to use the MKO as a leverage to pressure Iran”. “Iraq’s domestic problems and lack of certain Iraqi figures to concentrate on the MKO’s expulsion is another reason for the US to support the cult,” he said, adding that “the West is emboldened to support the MKO” just for that reason.

Presence of the terrorist Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO) in Iraq is illegal in every way, advisor to the Iraqi Prime Minister said.

In a meeting with Seyyed Mohammad Javad Hasheminejad, the Secretary-General of Habilian Association (families of 17,000 Iranian terror victims), Sheikh Abdul-Halim al-Zuhairi insisted that the MKO should be expelled from Iraq, Habilian Association website reported.

Al-Zuhairi said the US and Europe keep labeling the MKO as a terrorist group, insisting that “they support the cult, however, as they plan to use the MKO as a leverage to pressure Iran”.

“Iraq’s domestic problems and lack of certain Iraqi figures to concentrate on the MKO’s expulsion is another reason for the US to support the cult,” he said, adding that “the West is emboldened to support the MKO” just for that reason.

Al-Zuhairi said the MKO had misused the status quo in Iraq to expand their illegal activities. “However, the Iraqi Prime Minster acted against the cult bravely by deploying military forces around them,” he added.

Pointing the lowered influence of the MKO in Iraq, the Iraqi MP stated that the cult’s activity was limited to Camp Ashraf. “The US congress delegation’s supporting the MKO in Baghdad was really shocking for Iraqi government and the Prime Minister decided to expel the cult for the first time in the history of Arab states,” Al-Zuhairi said.

“The US congress reacted Maliki’s decision. Moreover, the US government stated that the delegation had expressed its own opinion which was not in accordance to the US government’s policy,” he said.
