Iran Refused Qaeda-MKO Exchange
According to BBC, Ali Asghar Haji, Iranian ambassador to Saudi Arabia, has said that Iran has already extradited those Al-Qaeda members who have had Saudi nationality. It seems that Iran, by saying this, wants to give a hint to the U.S. that it's not ready to exchange the MKO members with Al-Qaeda detainees. NY Times wrote last month: "the U.S. plan has been refused by Iran and they have sent their message to the U.S. by Swiss embassy in Tehran." NBC TV said in August: "the U.S. is covertly talking to Iran on exchange of Qaeda members…U.S. officials believe that Iran is ready to exchange them with MKO members…MKO is completely under the control of the U.S. Flinth Lauret says: the U.S. doesn't want to talk directly to Iran but this exchange can be in accordance with national interests of the U.S. Some U.S. officials say that this group is in terrorists list of the US State Department and that they have killed Americans and they should be handed to Iran." Muslim Alternative news revealed last month: "the U.S. has offered the exchange of MKO members who are now in Iraq. Pro- exchange talks say that getting 3 al-Qaeda members worth turning from Mojahedin." Experts believe that MKO's presence in Iraq is very unimportant for Iran to undermine the international rules of extradition of criminals.
