Hakim Criticizes the US for its dishonesty in fighting terrorism and recent support of Mojahedin-e Khalq terrorist organization
Abdul Aziz Al-Hakim, the head of SCIRI (supreme council for Islamic Revolution of Iraq), in an interview with Al-Hurra TV channel, said recent US support of Mojahedin-e Khalq is an example of this country's untruth in handing power to Iraqi people. Al-Hurra correspondent: what's your opinion about Washington's recent decision on supporting Mojahedin-e Khalq? Abdul Aziz Al-Hakim: in the conference of anti-Saddam groups in London, we decided to disband all terrorist groups in Iraq. Saddam regime had turned Iraq to safe haven for terrorists, particularly for MKO and PKK. Mojahedin treated Iraqi people violently. We have several mass graves in Iraq made by Mojahedin-e Khalq but the policy of the US- which is responsible for many current problems- toward this group is wrong. The US should take the responsibility for supporting this group. I stress once again that this is not a good act and shows that Americans were not honest in handing the power and sovereignty to Iraqis. Correspondent: what's the stance of SCIRI toward the neighboring countries' concerns about political situation in Iraq? Hakim: I had warned a few months ago that if terrorist groups remain in Iraq, they will get to the neighboring countries. So, neighbors are always concerned about the political future of Iraq. This concern is not related to the people of Iraq or people in those countries, it is about the fear of Iraq's turning to a big haven for terrorists and murderers.
