“We will not allow the MKO to conduct political, propaganda, or cultural activities on Iraqi soil and have reassured the Islamic Republic that this group cannot make any moves against Iran.We condemn them and we will dismantle their camps in Al-Khalis, Ashraf and Kut,” Al-Rubai said in conference.
Speaking at a press conference after a meeting with his Iranian counterpart, Ali Larijani, Iraqi National Security Advisor Mouwafak al-Rubai took part in a press conference and answered question. He appreciated Iran’s unlimited support and said: “Iran supported Iraq in political, cultural, economical and security fields. These supports led to the victory of Iraqis in 2003.” “We know that Iranians suffered a lot from Al-Qaeda and Baath party, and they got good experience. We hope we can use their experiences.” He stated that Iraq is interested in exchanging information and establishing security ties with Iran, adding that pursuing agreements made during Iraqi Prime Minister Ibrahim al-Jaafari’s trip to Iran was one of the issues on his agenda. Al-Rubai told reporters that Iraq also believes regional security must be established by regional states. “In this way, both terrorism and religious extremism will be eradicated,” he added. Asked about the measures Iraq has taken to control the country’s borders and to prevent insurgents from entering Iran, al-Rubi said Iraq is making serious efforts to prevent illegal entries into Iran and expects the same approach from the Iranian side. The Iraqi official stressed the necessity for the formation of a regional security system, adding that Iraq has agreed with Iran to form the nucleus of this system and believes this action would leave the foreigners no pretext to remain in Iraq and the region. On the issue of MKO’s presence in Iraq, he said: “Iraq won’t be a base for groups that want to harm Iran. In this regard, we have assured the Iranian side.” Referring to the Iraqi government’s decision to expel members of the Mujahedin Khalq Organization (MKO) from Iraq, al-Rubai said, “MKO members must hand over their weapons. They’re not even allowed to use food ration cards, because they’re not iraqis.” He stated that Iraq would not forget the MKO’s support for Saddam during the 1991 massacre of Iraqi Kurds, adding that some members of the MKO would be repatriated to Iran through the auspices of the Red Crescent. “We condemn them and we will dismantle their camps in Al-Khalis, Ashraf and Kut,” he said. “Of course, due to humane issues, we can’t repatriate some of MKO members to Iran,” he added. “We are seeking various ways to resolve the issue. We will not allow the MKO to conduct political, propaganda, or cultural activities on Iraqi soil and have reassured the Islamic Republic that this group cannot make any moves against Iran.”
