Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehman-Parast said on Tuesday that if the US government ‎removes the name of the terrorist group, with a long history in terrorist acts, from the list, "it would be ‎an act of violating international obligations and weakening global efforts in fighting against terrorism" ‎and will be condemned by world public opinion.

Iran lashed out at Washington for its decision to strike the name of the Mojahedin-e Khalq ‎Organization (MKO) off the list of terrorist groups, and stressed that the move will be violation of the ‎international obligations by the US.‎

 

Last week, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton notified Congress that she plans to take MKO (also ‎known as the MEK, PMOI and NCR) off a State Department terror list.‎

 

The notification will be followed by formal removal in coming days from the list of Foreign Terrorist ‎Organizations, which includes more than ‎‏50‏‎ groups.‎

 

Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehman-Parast said on Tuesday that if the US government ‎removes the name of the terrorist group, with a long history in terrorist acts, from the list, "it would be ‎an act of violating international obligations and weakening global efforts in fighting against terrorism" ‎and will be condemned by world public opinion.

 

‎Mehman-Parast added that the US double-standard attitude towards terrorism and manipulating ‎MKO for their political interests is not a new issue.

 

He underlined that transferring members of the MKO terrorist group from Camp Ashraf to another ‎place is not an acceptable excuse for international community to ignore terrorist nature of the ‎grouplet.
