Hassan Rohani, in an exclusive interview with al-Hayat, asked the U.S. to extradite the members
Hassan Rohani, in an exclusive interview with al-Hayat, asked the U.S. to extradite the members of MKO to Iran and avoid from interfering in Iran's internal affairs and finally, accept the entity of popular and Islamic revolution of Iran. Rohani rejected Qaeda-MKO exchange and said: "we don't want to deal on this." He added: "the only thing we expect from the U.S. is to respect international rules of fighting terrorism and based on this, the least it could do, is to investigate and try those terrorists it has arrested." In response to a question about the number of detainees and the place of them, Rohani said: "the U.S. has announced there are 3800 MKO detainees in a camp in Iraq." General Secretary of Supreme Security Council of Iran, stressed that Iran has arrested around 500 Al-Qaeda members and has extradited some of them to the countries of their origin. Referring to European citizenship of some of these people, Rohani added that some Al-Qaeda members who have committed security crimes are still in prisons in Iran and are under investigation. He rejected reports on formal U.S. requests on extradition of Al-Qaeda members and said: the U.S. knows that there's no security cooperation between Iran and the U.S. so it asks it from other countries and it's surprising that it insists on its requests and meanwhile doesn't leave its stance on MKO case."
