Iran: Attacking Iranian diplomats sign of MKO inhuman nature

Iran's Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehman-Parast condemned the US police's ‎indifference to the last week attack on Iranian diplomats in New York by the members of ‎the terrorist Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO), adding the deed proved the inhuman ‎nature of this terrorist grouplet.‎

Mehman-Parast said that defamatory behavior of agents of the MKO in New York showed their ‎real nature, which is an ugly and inhuman nature of terrorists.

He added it seems that even other groups abroad were opposed to such a behavior and they ‎showed negative reaction and reprimanded it and none of them approved of such a behavior.

New York City police and the US security forces made no arrests as the attackers physically ‎abused members of the Iranian delegation accompanying Iran's President Mahmoud ‎Ahmadinejad in his visit to the United States to address the ‎‏67‏th session of the UN General ‎Assembly.

The US State Department on Friday removed the MKO from its list of foreign terrorist ‎organizations. The decision made by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton enabled the group to have ‎its assets under US jurisdiction unfrozen and do business with American entities, the State ‎Department said in a statement on Friday.‎

Iran's first reaction came on Saturday when the Iranian Foreign Ministry in a statement ‎condemned the US move and said it displayed Washington's double standard policies.‎‎‏9107110220
