Daily Star, in an article by Cilina Nasser, wrote:Yousef Azizi (an expert in Iran affairs) was referring to the decision made by the US-controlled Iraqi Governing Council (IGC) in Iraq earlier this month to expel thousands of militants belonging to the Iranian opposition Mujahideen Khalq from the country by the end of the year. The Mujahideen ran a low-level armed campaign against the Islamic Republic from bases along the border under Saddam Hussein’s protection. The decision to expel the militant group came about a month after foreign ministers of the seven states neighboring Iraq issued a statement following a meeting in Damascus in which they called on the Iraqi authorities to remove “terrorist groups” that constitute a threat to them. “The groups that the foreign ministers were referring to in their statement are Mujahideen Khalq and the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK),” Yassine Majeed, a Tehran-based writer and journalist for Arabic-language media institutions, told The Daily Star. “Iraqis believe that Mujahideen Khalq is a terrorist organization that was part of the security apparatus run by the former Iraqi regime, and that it played a role in putting down the 1991 (Shiite) uprising” against Saddam, he said. The expulsion of Mujahideen Khalq also constituted recognition by the Governing Council that Iraq needs good relations with its neighbors. “In return, the IGC expects Iran to impose strict surveillance along the borders to hinder foreign fighters from infiltrating Iraq from its territory,” Majeed said.
