US State Department has banned any kinds of support of Mojahedin in the U.S. and Iraq and has ordered the financial organizations to freeze its assets. The full text of State Department's statement is as follows: Press Statement (Revised) Richard Boucher, Spokesman Washington, DC October 2, 2003 Redesignation of Foreign Terrorist Organizations 2003/1000 The Secretary of State redesignated 25 groups as Foreign Terrorist Organizations under U.S. law on October 2, 2003. The initial designations of these groups in 1997 and 1999 are due to expire on October 3, 2003. By re-certifying them as Foreign Terrorist Organizations and publishing that decision today in the Federal Register, we preserve the U.S. Government’s ability to take action against them in accordance with the provisions of the Immigration and Nationality Act, as amended. This act makes it illegal for persons in the United States or subject to U.S. jurisdiction to provide material support to these terrorist groups. It requires U.S. financial institutions to block assets held by them; and it enables us to deny visas to representatives of these groups. The Secretary made this decision in consultation with the Attorney General and the Secretary of the Treasury after a thorough review of these groups’ terrorist activities over the past two years. With this redesignation, the number of designated Foreign Terrorist Organizations is 36. As we carry on the global campaign against terrorism, we hope this list will help to isolate these terrorist organizations, to choke off their sources of financial support, and to prevent their members’ movement across international borders.
