"The main problem with the members of the terrorist group is that they do not behave as refugees inside the country but as armed forces that reject requests for talks. They do not allow the Iraqi forces, authorities and police to enter the camp to inspect the situation."

The Head of the Iraqi Parliamentary Foreign Relations Commission Sheikh Humam Hammoudi said despite all pressures Iraq would oust MKO from the country.
Hammoudi called the Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO) a terrorist group and pointed out, "despite the all efforts made by the western countries, Iraq wants to expel the group."
"Based on Iraqi law, the MKO is a terrorist group which has killed many Iraqi people. They were supported financially by Iraqi former regime and pressed people inside the country. National measures were taken by Iraqi Cabinet members to oust the group and the act was supported by the people."Hammoudi told ISNA.
As to Camp Ashraf, he continued, "We discussed the issue with the UN and Americans. We will never let the group continue its violation."
He added, "Iraqi government is under pressure by the European Union for not practicing its decision on ousting the MKO members from the country, but we will move in line with our objectives."
He said, "The main problem with the members of the terrorist group is that they do not behave as refugees inside the country but as armed forces that reject requests for talks. They do not allow the Iraqi forces, authorities and police to enter the camp to inspect the situation."
He went on to say, "There is a great tendency by the Iraqi government to keep away the group from the borderlands and not let them create inconvenience for the neighboring states particularly Iran since their presence in Iran's borderline will create problems."
As to the presence of the PJAK and PKK group in Iranian and Turkish borderlines Hammoudi added, "We held different meetings on the issue. Their presence in Iraq is against the country's constitution, since based on the constitution no group is allowed to take measures against the neighboring states. Iraqi government has played its role based on the law."
Hammoudi continued, "We called for the formation of the joint commission amongst Iran, Turkey and Iraq so that we can take steps in line with protecting the Iraqi Sovereignty, non-aggression to the neighboring states and non-use of the Iraqi soil as a threat against others."
He pointed out, "The Kurdistan's regional government expressed its dissatisfaction on the presence of the group as well and called on the group to put their guns down and use political strategy to achieve their goals."
