Alireza Nourizadeh has interviewed Abdulmalek Rigi and the whole interview is accessible on his website. Asked by Nourizadeh about his group's ties to the MKO, Rigi reveals his sympathy for them: Nourizadeh: Mr. Rigi, thanks for you explanations. I have another question for you on your connection with Iranian opposition groups. When the Islamic republic broadcasts films of MKO's ties with Saddam's regime and dealing with it (exchanging intelligence and ….) it was said that MKO's TV channel showed something about you, which became a pretext for regime to claim that you're connected to this organization and that the MKO provides you with weapons and ammunition. This is, of course, irrelevant but I want to hear it from you. Are you in touch with Iranian opposition groups? Do you have deep ties with MKO, as claimed by the regime? What are your conditions for siding with other groups? Rigi: I should note that an organization in such situation necessarily has to be in touch with at least opposition. Of course, it's important that the organization defines its ties with other groups according to their records and whether they have acted in favor of people or against it. On ties with MKO, as you said, I stress that our ties are limited to a few email messages. This is inevitable. They congratulated us for our achievements and we expressed happiness when limitations were lifted from them. Most of our contacts are allocated to the groups that act peacefully and respect people. I'm ready to answer if you have more questions on this.
