EU Commissioner for external relations, Chris Patten, in reply to a recent question by British MEP Chris Davies whether the
MKO presents any threat to the security of the world outside Iran, noted that the EU Common Position 'contains a number
of criteria that have to be met and as a result the Mojahedin-e Khalq have been included on the list in May 2002'.
Meanwhile, a report presented to the EU Council by the government of Netherlands in August 2000 on the situation in Iran
writes, "The MKO seems to have virtually no following in Iran.
"Its stance on Iraq's side in the Iran-Iraq war has severely discredited the organization. Even now, the MKO still maintains
its military structure in Iraq, with the Iraqi authorities' knowledge and support.
"The MKO sees no chance of taking advantage of recent democratic developments in Iran, being itself an anti-democratic
organization,"said the report.
