On the issue of MKO's activities in France, Mr. De Roux said: "France considers this group a terrorist organization and doesn't allow it to act against Iran from France."
In a meeting with the Iranian foreign minister Manouchehr Mottaki, the chairman of the French-Iranian Parliamentary Friendship Group, Xavier de Roux said on the terrorist MKO: "France views this group as a terrorist organization". In the meeting, Mottaki also said that "there is no good and bad terrorism in the world", referring to the group's efforts to ruin the relations between the two countries. In the meeting with Haddad Adel, De Roux said that Tehran-Paris relations are deep-rooted and important, adding that France regards the MKO as a terrorist group and it is under the surveillance of the French police. France’s decision to harbor members of the terrorist Mujahedin Khalq Organization (MKO) and certain other groups that are opposed to the Islamic Republic of Iran will not improve the position of the country in the eyes of Iranians, the Iranian parliament speaker pointed out. Also, in the meeting with Ala'addin Broujerdi, the Head of National Security and Foreign Policy Commission of Majlis, De Roux said Tehran-Paris have long and well-established ties; on the issue of MKO's activities in France, he said: "France considers this group a terrorist organization and doesn't allow it to act against Iran from France." In his talks with Iranian minister of Judiciary, De Roux said: "France believes the MKO is illegal and terrorist. They are under the control of police and the judicial investigation on the group is underway." Meeting Deputy foreign minister Dr. Jalili, he assured that the MKO is under permanent surveillance in France and the government is not interested in changing its position towards the group.
