After months of MKO's efforts, US government announced officially that MKO is an international terrorist organization and that its fate is at the hand of Iraqi government and that it is and will be on the list of terrorists. In this regard, Lawrence Di Rita, Special Assistant to The Secretary of Defense; and Brigadier General David Rodriguez, Deputy Director for Operations, said in a press conference that there have been no agreements with Iraq on Mojahedin and that Iraq acts independently in making decisions about them. In response to a question that " post-handover, is there a change of status expected for the MEK members who are being held at Camp Ashraf?" Mr. Di Rita said: "their status remains what they are, which is an international terrorist organization. How we manage the presence of the MEK in Iraq is a matter of some discussions with the Iraqi government, now that the Iraqi government is sovereign and capable of making decisions on its own, and we're engaged in that discussion. But it happens to be a country on the international terror list -- or a group on the international terrorist list." Another question was that " Is anything written into the status of forces agreement with Iraq that had anything to do with the MEK?" Di Rita replied: " I'm not aware that we have a status of forces agreement with Iraq. What we have are a series of agreements that flow from the U.N. resolutions, and I'm not aware that there's anything other than the ongoing dialogue with the Iraqi sovereign government about the best way to manage the MEK situation."
