The PMOI's terrorist listing was first secured nine years ago as a concession to the reformist government of Mohammed Khatami, but it has been consistently renewed since then.

In an article by James Graff, "Are The PMOI Iran's last Hope For A Peaceful Solution?", TIMEeurope has discussed the position of MKO in the west.
