Mohammad-Hassan Asfari, member of the Majlis Committee on National Security and Foreign Policy, condemns the United States for removing the name of MKO (Mojahedin-e-Khalq Organization) from its blacklist of terrorist organizations.
“When this terrorist organization was discharged from its main house (Camp Ashraf) and were sent to Camp Liberty, we saw that no country in world willed to accept them. Americans are trying to find a place for this group on other countries than Iraq. United States delisted the name of MKO from terrorist organizations to avoid the members being wandered off and homeless.” said Mohammad-Hassan Asfari, Arak’s representative to Majlis. The People’s Mujahedin of Iran or the Mujahadeen-e-Khalq (MEK, also PMOI, MKO) is a militant revolutionary Iranian organization that was one of the leading participants of the 1979 Revolution that overthrew the Pahlavi Shah. It is now an opposition movement in exile that advocates the overthrow of the Islamic Republic of Iran.
The Iranian lawmaker also accused the United States of launching training centers for terrorists in the Middle East region. “United States is the big supporter of international terrorism. This country train terrorists and dispatch them to different countries in order to create convulsions. In this way, Americans can sell their produced arms and weapons to states.” Asfari concluded.
