Kilfoyle said that parliament should maintain its condemnation of the group that has carried out numerous terrorist attacks in Iran over the past 30 years.
Former defense minister Peter Kilfoyle is urging the British government to hold more talks with Iran to resolve issues over Tehran's civilian nuclear program. Kilfoyle said that while recognizing the "delicate situation" in relations with Iran, he was calling for "restraint by the international community in its dealings with the Iranian government with regard to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty." In an Early Day Motion filed with the British Parliament, signed so far by six other MPs, he said that the parliament should note that both Israel and Pakistan have developed nuclear weapons in the region. "Diplomacy is the sensible way to resolve any difficulties with the Iranian government," warned the former defense minister, who strongly opposed the war against Iraq. In the petition, which was also supported by former Conservative foreign office minister Douglas Hogg, he said that he was urging "further dialogue between Iran and the international community under the auspices of the United Nations." In respect to a campaign by sympathizers of the terrorist Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO) to deproscribe the group, Kilfoyle said that parliament should maintain its condemnation of the group that has carried out numerous terrorist attacks in Iran over the past 30 years. Some MPs, linked with the MKO's umbrella group, the so-called National Council of Resistance, have been pressing the government to support the MKO as a symbolic gesture against Iran's elected government.
