Fazel al-Shoveili, deputy Iraqi Security Minister, revealed that the terrorist group of Mojahedin-e khalq has a budget equal to that of al-Qaeda.
Deputy Iraqi Security Minister said the terrorist group of Mojahedin-e kahlq was acting against Iraqis.
According to Mohit website, Fazel al-Shoveili, deputy Iraqi Security Minister, revealed that the terrorist group of Mojahedin-e khalq had a budget equal to that of al-Qaeda.
According to al-Alam news site, the Iraqi official stressed: "The terrorist MEK received such financial aids to kill Iraqis."
The news is reported at a time when Iraqis are increasingly demanding the government to expel the group from their country.
However, after it was revealed that the group interferes in Iraqi affairs, and following the exposure of its active role in killing Iraqis (before and after the fall of Saddam), the Iraqi government gave the group the opportunity to either return to Iran or choose another country.
On the other hand, Iraqi government's spokesman Ali al-Dabbagh said in a press conference that "Iraqi government was in a difficult situation and it wouldn't give asylum to the group."
"The group has started interfering in Iraq's internal affairs while its presence is illegal. So, Council of Ministers decided to establish a special committee to dismantle the group," he added.
Meanwhile, Press TV recently quoted al-Bayyeneh newspaper (based in Iraq) writing: "Prince Bandar Bin Sultan is providing the MKO with financial aids in order to weaken the Iraqi government and to pave the way for the participation of all pro-Baath Iraqi groups in MKO's congress."
According to al-Bayyeneh, the MKO held a meeting in its Camp Ashraf recently, with the participation of former Baath leaders, some al-Qaeda and Ansar al-Islam elements, and Bin Sultan gave 750000 dollars to the group.
Bin Sultan was Saudi's ambassador to the US for 20 years.
