Iraq urges EU to accept MKO members

A senior Iraqi Member of Parliament called on European Union countries to take Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK, a.k.a. MKO) elements in their countries.

MP Karim Aliwi said, in a statement, that if the European Union is interested in defending the MKO members, takes them in their own countries, Habilian Association reported on Sunday.

The EU’s support for the MKO made us ask them to take these criminals inside their countries. “They are giving their support to the MKO, while they are not even willing to grant them asylum since they know it’s a criminal group.”

“By no means, we agree to the continued presence of the murderers of our nation at the time of infidel Saddam in Iraq,” Aliwi added expressing opposition to the presence of MKO in Iraq.

The terrorist MKO group based itself in Iraq during the 1980s and abetted the Iraqi dictator in his war on Iran.

With the fall of Saddam, MKO seemingly made drastic changes changing from an anti-imperialist group to a friend of the very imperialists.
