MKO was accomplice in assassination of nuclear experts: Iran

An Iranian Foreign Ministry official has said that the Mojahadin Khalq Organization is an accomplice in ‎the assassination of Iranian nuclear scientists. ‎

Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast made the remarks in an interview with Al-Alam ‎News Network broadcast on Sunday night in reference to the fact that the U.S. State Department ‎formally removed the MKO from its list of terrorist organizations on Friday. ‎

Mehmanparast said that the MKO has never renounced “terrorist activities” and has only changed its ‎approach. ‎

‎“The most recent terrorist moves, in which they were involved, were the assassinations of our nuclear ‎scientists in cooperation with the Zionist regime’s security agents,” he stated. ‎

The Iranian Foreign Ministry issued a statement on Saturday stating that the delisting of the MKO was ‎‎“a violation of the United States’ legal and international commitments” and could threaten U.S. ‎interests. ‎

The decision “will bring U.S. responsibility for past, present, and future terrorist operations by this ‎group,” the statement read.‎‎‏101979‏‎-mko-was-accomplice-in-assassination-of-nuclear-experts-‎iran
