Iran originally refused to attend the meetings but then reportedly reversed its decision after an agreement by the Iraqi government to clamp down on the anti-Tehran group Mujahadeen-e-Khalq (MEK), according to Middle East expert Juan Cole.
In his analysis published on the website of CFR (Council on Foreign Relations), Lionel Beehner discusses the position of neighbors of Iraq in Sharm El-Sheikh conference and writes: " Iran originally refused to attend the meetings but then reportedly reversed its decision after an agreement by the Iraqi government to clamp down on the anti-Tehran group Mujahadeen-e-Khalq (MEK), according to Middle East expert Juan Cole." Juan Cole, in his article, has cited to: "KarbalaNews.net alleges in Arabic that Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari promised the Iranians that Iraq would expel from its territory the members of the anti-Tehran terrorist group, the Mojahedin-i Khalq (MEK or MKO). Saddam had given them a base, Camp Ashraf, from which they sent terrorists over the border to blow things up in Iran. The Neoconservatives in the US Department of Defense wanted to go on using MEK in this same way, but the State Department labeled them a terrorist organization. If this report is correct, the Iraqi government may at last have taken a decisive step in this regard. And, it was possibly a demand of the Iranians with regard to their attendance at the Sharm El Sheikh Conference this week."
