Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki underlined Baghdad's determination to end the presence of the terrorist Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO, MEK, NCRI, NLA, PMOI, Rajavis' cult...) on his country soil.
In the article "building a stable Iraq" published by US daily Washington Post, Nouri al-Maliki pointed to the presence of thousands of MKO terrorists in the main training camp in the country's Diyala province, and said, "The residents of Camp Ashraf (the Camp of New Iraq) have caused a great deal of controversy here (Iraq) and in the United States. I would like to see this complex issue resolved peacefully and with the help of the United Nations."
"The camp's residents are classified as a terrorist organization by many countries and thus have no legal basis to remain in Iraq," Maliki added.
He reiterated the terrorist nature of the group, and added, "No country would accept the presence of foreign insurgents on its soil, but we will work hard to find a peaceful solution that upholds the international values of human rights." The MKO, whose main stronghold is in Iraq, is blacklisted by much of the international community, including the United States.
