The State Department says that new Iraqi government has given no indications so far that it wants MKO to stay in Iraq. Pentagon which is responsible for Camp Ashraf only says: discussions are ongoing.
July 2, 2004 After many questions were raised about the fate of terrorist MKO and US stance toward them, Fox News channel has reflected their status in Iraq: The Iranian opposition group Mujahedeen Khalq (MEK) was given safe haven for decades by former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein to launch attacks against his enemy Iran, but now the 4,000 members remain in limbo. After Saddam's defeat at the hands of the U.S.-led coalition last year, the group signed a cease-fire with the U.S. military agreeing to remain holed up in their main location, Camp Ashraf, about 60 miles north of Baghdad. The MEK is considered a terrorist group by the U.S. government and the Iraqi Governing Council, the predecessor to today's Iraqi government, abruptly ordered the MEK to be deported months ago. But that order passed unfulfilled and now they await a decision by the new government who, along with the U.S., has remained mum on the topic. Adam Ereli said: "What we have said previously about that situation remains the case today." The limbo has worked in the group's favor because Washington has said they cannot be sent back to Iran where they would face certain persecution. Meanwhile, events in Iraq have given more optimism to MEK supporters that a new government will welcome them. But the State Department says: new Iraqi government has given no indications so far that it wants MKO to stay in Iraq. Pentagon which is responsible for Camp Ashraf only says: discussions are ongoing. Fox News's report:,2933,124636,00.html
