Iraqi Prime Minster Nouri al-Maliki says the terrorist Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO) has become a "serious concern" and will soon be expelled.

 

"The MKO has become a serious concern for Iraq and a regional concern," Noori Maliki said during a meeting with Iranian Intelligence Minister Heidar Moslehi in Baghdad on Tuesday night.

 

Baghdad is seeking ways to fully expel the terrorist cell from the Iraqi soil, the Iraqi minister added.

 

Maliki also called for closer bilateral cooperation with the neighboring countries to help the establishment and promotion of permanent security in Iraq.

The Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization, blamed for the assassination of many Iranian people and officials after the 1979 Islamic Revolution, fled to Iraq in the 1980s where they enjoyed the support of former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein, who allowed them to set up a military base near the Iranian border.

Members of the anti-Iranian group currently live at Camp Liberty, a former US military camp near Baghdad Airport, after their relocation from their former Camp Ashraf under growing pressure from the Iraqi government and people for the terrorist group to leave the country.
