Iraqi President Jalal Talabani, in a meeting with the Iranian media in Iraq, praised Iran's approach towards political and democratic process in Iraq after the fall of Saddam and said about the terrorist MKO: "Iraq's stance on this terrorist entity is clear. Our constitution stresses that there's no place for terrorist groups in Iraq." According to IRNA, Iraqi president and the head of PUK also added: "We, Kurds, know the MKO as "M.M." which means the organization of Massoud and Maryam Rajavi." "Members of this organization were the only forces who cooperated with Baath regime against Kurds and fought Kurd peshmerga forces". He stressed that this group can't stay in Iraq and act, adding: "We asked the Iranian government to pardon many of them. Hundreds of them returned to their country." "MKO members will leave Iraq. In this regard, we have contacted Americans and third countries to pave the way for the expulsion of these people from Iraq," he added. In response to a question by IRNA that why the US doesn't accept MKO members, Mr. Talabani sadi: "I really don't know why Americans don't accept MKO elements. The US government has formally designated the MKO a terrorist organization and therefore it can't accept MKO members in its soil. Some 120 MKO members signed a letter recently to push the US government to lift MKO's name from terror list."
