Iraqi Parliament Speaker Osama Nujaifi called on the UN to take proper measures to facilitate expulsion of the anti-Iran terrorist Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO) from Iraq's soil.

Speaking to reporters, Nujaifi reiterated Baghdad's decisive stance on MKO's expulsion from Iraq's soil, and said their expulsion should take place through coordination with the United Nations.

He added that the main suggestion seems to be moving MKO member to a third country and not to another area in Iraq.

Earlier, Iraqi Ambassador to Tehran Mohammad Majid al-Sheikh underscored Baghdad's serious decision for expelling the MKO, and said the decision is irreversible.

"Based on the Iraqi government's decision, the MKO members should leave our country by the end of 2011," al-Sheikh told FNA on Monday, and reiterated, "The decision is irreversible and definite."

He also said that Iraqi officials in their different meetings with their counterparts at the EU, the UN and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) have underlined their seriousness in expelling the MKO from their country's soil.

"We have always stressed that there is no possibility for their longer presence in Iraq at all and we have declared this to the international organizations," al-Sheikh said.
