Those who act against Iran from the Iraqi territory are living with the ideas of Saddam Regime.
Mr. Mohammed Majid Al-Sheikh, Iraqi ambassador answered questions about the relations between two countries. One of the questions was about the presence and future of the terrorist group of Mojahedin-e Khalq.
Q: When Saddam was in power and the presence of Mojahedin was questions, Saddam talked about the presence of SCIRI and its forces in Iran. Now that SCIRI is in Iraqi administration and there are 4000 MKO members in Iraq, what’s the justification for protecting them?
A: Mojahedin-e Khalq has been in Iraq since the former regime. Although it had its special operations before, it’s now banned from any kind of activity. This organization is now disarmed and has not the right to move outside its camp. In addition, we have asked them to return to Iran if they want. We have coordinated with Red Cross in this regard. We have also clarified it for them that we won’t let them act militarily and that they’re under control. Anyway, we are ready to pave the way for their return to their country or any country they want.
