Mojahedin had one year to leave Iraq and travel to another country except Iran.
Mohammed Qasem Khazir, the head of IGC's Immigration Ministry, stressed: Mojahedin-e khalq had one year time to leave Iraq and go to a country except Iran. Finding a country that accepts them is not the duty of Iraqi government and we can't endanger the future of our relations with Iran for the people who had close relations with Saddam.
Radio Farda, according to Chronus International Italy, adds:
Ali Ghaderi, MKO's spokesman, has said that the group, which is now based in Ashraf Base, is ready to leave Iraq if a country accepts to protect them. He said they should not be sent to Iran and International communities should think of finding a place to transfer them to.
The report adds: during a demonstration, the people of Khalis in Iraq (near Ashraf base) asked for the expulsion of Mojahedin and their supporters from Iraq.
