Speaking at a news conference in the Iraqi capital alongside his Iranian counterpart Ali Akbar Salehi, Zebari said on Monday that Baghdad has informed the United Nations refugee agency and the European Union about its plan to expel MKO members.

"We have already made it clear about closing ... Camp Ashraf before. The decision will be implemented by the end of this year," Zebari said.

"The government insists on completing this mission ... There is no government that would agree to an organization staying against its (authorities') will, laws and sovereignty," he added.

The Iraqi Foreign Minister's remarks came one day after country's Minister of Human Rights Mohammad Shayaa al-Sudani stressed that the notorious camp, located about 120 kilometers (74 miles) west of the border with Iran, would be closed before US troops pull-out and by the end of the year.

Al-Sudani said that a high-profile team consisting of officials from the justice, human rights and defense ministries were looking for a legal solution to the issue.
