Foreign Ministry Spokesman Hamid-Reza Asefi on Sunday criticized as "unacceptable" the recent US remarks that members of the terrorist Mujahedin Khalq Organization (MKO) would be extradited to third countries.
Asefi, speaking in his weekly press briefing, said Iran has already warned other countries not to shelter MKO members.
"We have warned other countries, particularly European states, that the presence of MKO members in those countries will leave negative impacts on their relations with the Islamic Republic," he said.
Iraq's American Governor Paul Bremer said on Friday that the MKO members who are currently in US custody would not be sent to Iran and would be rather transferred to third countries.
Asefi lashed out at the US for its selective approach in dealing with the terrorists, intimating that Washington's decision on MKO members was an example of such approach.
"The US has detained a group of people who are accused of collaborating with the Al-Qaeda in Guantanamo, and on the other hand allows another group of terrorists to freely walk around the world,"he said.
Iranian Interior Minister Abdolreza Rahmani Fazli called for tougher measures against the Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO, also known as the MEK, PMOI and NCRI) terrorist group by the European Union...
