|Ending the presence of the MKO in Iraq and the consequences of their remaining in the country are among the main topics discussed in Iraq’s political circles.|
In a conference organized by the Iraqi Center for Media Development, a number of Iraqi officials and ordinary people came together in the capital Baghdad to talk about the efforts of the US government to remove the MKO from the international terrorist organization’s list.
The tribal leaders criticized the silence of the United Nation’s towards this act and said that such step is raising doubts about the US intentions in the region and reveals the US future plans especially against Iran.
The organizers showed frustration toward the intervention of the US government in this issue, saying that the US is putting pressures on the Iraqi officials to keep the MKO in Iraq.
They said the main motive is to use MKO to launch attacks against the neighboring country.
Political observers say that the Iraqi government should take some serious steps toward the expulsion of the MKO.
The group is especially notorious in Iran for having sided with former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein during the 1980-1988 Iran-Iraq war.
The attendees have condemned the efforts of the US government’s efforts in removing the MKO from the international terrorist Organization’s list and criticized the response of the United Nations towards such behavior, moreover many political observers have warned of the consequences of the remaining of the MKO in Iraq saying that the step has been taken to keep them in the country.
