a number of penitent former members of the terrorist Mujahedeen Khalq Organization (MKO) have returned to their families in Iran through ICRC activities and noted that they all have expressed 'satisfaction' over the way the Iranian government has treated them.
Iran`s Foreign Minister Kamal Kharrazi exchanged views with the president of the International Committee of Red Cross Jakob Kellenberger on the latest developments in mutual cooperation.
According to Iran's State News Agency (IRNA), in a meeting on the sidelines of the ongoing 35th World Economic Forum in Davos, the two sides discussed the crises and adverse security situation in Iraq as well as the future prospect of the country after the elections.
Outlining the ICRC activities in Iraq, Kellenberger pointed out that a number of penitent former members of the terrorist Mujahedeen Khalq Organization (MKO) have returned to their families in Iran through ICRC activities and noted that they all have expressed 'satisfaction' over the way the Iranian government has treated them.
Saying that the ICRC will continue efforts to repatriate further numbers of the penitent MKO members, he expressed gratitude over Iran`s attitude towards them.
Briefing Kellenberger on Iran`s views regarding developments in Iraq, Kharrazi expressed his opinion that the establishment of a popular government as well as the alien forces` abandoning the country will reduce terrorist activities in the country.
He said those MKO members who have committed no crimes are welcomed by Iranian government and went on to assure the president that Iran will cooperate with ICRC in this regard.
