Iranian Foreign Ministry Raps US Support for MKO Terrorist Group

The Iranian foreign ministry on Monday lambasted US Congressman Dana Rohrabacher's recent meeting with ringleaders of Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO, also known as the MEK, PMOI and NCRI) terrorist group on the recent unrest in Iran, describing it as meddling and clear support for terrorism.
"This is clear interference and support for terrorism," Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi told reporters in Tehran on Monday.
He stressed that even the documents in the US clearly show MKO's terrorist nature, and said, "We consider it (the meeting) as an interfering and hostile measure against the Iranian nation that amounts to support for terrorism and pursuit of double-standards."
"This is one of those behaviors that the US will certainly be condemned for by the Iranian society and people," Qassemi said.
