U.S. pursuing failed policy of backing MEK: advisor

Hossein Amir Abdollahian, a senior foreign policy advisor to the parliament speaker, said on Tuesday that Washington is pursuing the failed policy of supporting the Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO/MEK) to put pressure on Iran.

In a meeting with the new Dutch Ambassador to Tehran Susan Trstal, Amir Abdollahian called on the Netherlands to stop the activities of the MEK terrorist group in the European country.

Trstal, for her part, said Amsterdam is eager to expand ties with Iran in all fields.
