Iraqi deputy FM: No country willing to shelter MKO terrorists

No country in the world accepts to shelter members of the anti-Iran terrorist Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO), Iraqi Deputy Foreign Minister Labid al-Abawi stressed on Monday.

"The UN is in talks with some immigrant-accepting countries to convince them to shelter the MKO members, but no country has yet accepted to shelter them," Abawi told FNA when asked about the latest developments in relation to the expulsion of the MKO members from Iraq.

"The grouplet is now in the transit Camp Liberty in Baghdad and the UN will start their transition as soon as a third country is found for them," he added.

Abawi said that the Iraqi government has complied with all its undertakings in this regard in a bid to ensure the rapid expulsion of the terrorist MKO from its soil.

The MKO is behind a slew of assassinations and bombings inside Iran, a number of EU parliamentarians said in a recent letter in which they slammed a British court decision to remove the MKO from the British terror list. The EU officials also added that the group has no public support within Iran because of their role in helping Saddam Hussein in the Iraqi imposed war on Iran (1980-1988).
