VOA has reviewed MKO's status in an interview with Hamed Al-Bayati: -What will happen to MKO which is considered a terrorist organization by both Iran and the US? Dr. Hamed Al-Bayati, deputy of Iraqi foreign minister said: Iraq wants the group to leave Iraq voluntarily. Bayati says: "all political parties in Iraq have decided that Iraq should be emptied of military and paramilitary groups, especially groups like MKO and PKK, so we want them to leave Iraq and go to other countries. There are approximately 4000 MKO members in Ashraf Camp. Neither likes MKO to leave Iraq nor do any other countries accept them. Even France which hosted them for years raided and arrested them last year. Dr. Bayati says: Iran will pardon them. It has announced that it will welcome a large part of them, especially those who have been POWs and have joined MKO. Iran guarantees that they won't be in danger by returning to Iran, but those who have committed crimes and those who have been involved in attacking Iranian officials can't return to the country. Dr. Bayati says that some European countries may accept them. He adds that in future, Iraqi government, along with multinational forces, will control Camp Ashraf.

We have affairs with Iran and we have formed a committee to resolve all differences between two countries.
