Hussein Abdulaziz said in an interview with Al-Alam News Network: “this group is not able to wage a military war against Iran, so it tries to galvanize Iran-Iraq ties. Such moves come at a time when the two countries are trying to heal the old wounds.”
Deputy of Iraqi Journalists Association said that Mojahedin-e Khalq has bribed some Iraqi newspapers to advertise against Iran.
Hussein Abdulaziz said that the purpose of this move by MKO is to publish divisive materials and prevent the normalization of Iraq-Iran relations.
According to Mehr News, Hussein Abdulaziz said in an interview with Al-Alam News Network: “this group is not able to wage a military war against Iran, so it tries to galvanize Iran-Iraq ties. Such moves come at a time when the two countries are trying to heal the old wounds.”
“A number of Iraqi newspapers receive money from this group under the name of advertisement but instead, they publish divisive articles to disrupt the Iraq-Iran relations. They also try to accuse Iran of supporting terrorism in Iraq. Mojahedin-e Khalq is always trying to destabilize two countries’ ties.”
On the position of some Iraqi politicians as well as occupying forces who back the existence of this group in Iraq-despite it’s been listed by State Department as a terrorist entity- Abdulaziz said: “The US can’t bother Islamic Republic so it should use this group as a leverage.”
“Occupying forces don’t benefit from erasing terrorism in Iraq since they won’t have justification for their presence in the country. If there’s no unrest, their presence won’t be justified.”
Abdulaziz added: “since the fall of Iraqi regime, terrorism has got its roots in the country and is backed by some elements who lost their advantages as Saddam was overthrown and includes these elements taking revenge on others.”
“Iraqi government can’t allow its soil to be the used for enmity against its neighbors since Iraqi people are not hostile with their neighbors.”
