Visiting Iraqi First Vice President Adel Abdul Mahdi said in a meeting with Habilian Club’s general secretary in Mashhad on Wednesday that Iraq would soon expel the members of the terrorist Mujahideen Khalq Organization (MKO) from Iraq. “We will definitely expel them and bring to justice those members who are found guilty,” the Iranian Students News Agency (ISNA) quoted him as saying. The MKO are called the Monafeqin (hypocrites) in Iran. “We were opposed to their stay in Iraq before and after the dictatorial regime of Saddam Hussein was deposed. We always considered the terrorist members of the MKO as a part of Saddam’s army,” he added. Abdul Mahdi noted that this terrorist group has not only martyred many Iranians but many Iraqis, too. The MKO has been placed on the terrorist lists of both the European Union and the United States. Seyed Javad Hasheminejad, general secretary of Habilian Club, also said referred to the terrorist crimes of the Monafeqin in Iran and said, “The presence of Iraqi statesmen in Iran and establishing friendly ties between the two countries has given a new hope to us that we can sue the MKO for its crimes of this group after 25 years.” “Your country and ours have been freed from dictators and we hope they can be freed from terrorism as well,” Hasheminejad said to Iraqi vice president. “For the time being, this terrorist group is plotting against the interests of both Iran and Iraq. It’s particularly engaged in making problems for Iraqis.” Then, Mohammed Majid Al-Sheikh, Iraqi ambassador to Iran, referred to the gathering of MKO members’ families before the Iraqi embassy in Tehran and said, “They want the Iraqi government to pave the way for the return to their loved ones to Iran.” “They said that their children didn’t want to stay in the group in Iraq; they asked Iraq to talk to them and return them back to their country,” he added. Citing the comments of Iraqi vice president, Sheikh stressed: “This group will have no place in Iraq and would be expelled from Iraq as soon as possible. Those who like to return to Iran will be allowed to do so. There’s no doubt that the criminals of the group will be tried.”
