Iran holds U.S. responsible for any terrorist act by MKO: MP

Iranian MP Hossein Naqavi-Hosseini has criticized the United States’ decision to remove the ‎Mojahedin Khalq Organization from its list of terrorist groups. ‎

The U.S. State Department on Friday formally removed the MKO, whose members are known as ‎munafiqin (hypocrites who claim to be Muslims) in Iran, from its official list of terrorist organizations, ‎Reuters reported. ‎

In an interview with the Persian service of the Mehr News Agency on Saturday, Naqavi-Hosseini, who ‎is the rapporteur of the Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee, said, “The United ‎States formally announced its support for the munafiqin group with this measure.” ‎

‎“It is natural that the United States will be henceforth directly responsible for any terrorist act carried ‎out by this group because, due to this measure of the United States, members of the group will be ‎able to travel everywhere and transfer their assets and continue their crimes,” he stated. ‎

Naqavi-Hosseini also said, “On the one hand, the United States attacks Afghanistan and Iraq under the ‎pretext of campaigning against terrorism and levels allegations against countries, but, on the other ‎hand, it cooperates with terrorist groups and provide assistance to them.”‎‎‏101894‏‎-iran-holds-us-responsible-for-any-terrorist-act-by-‎mko-mp
