A senior Iraqi politician said that the anti-Iran terrorist Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO) is still carrying out terrorist activities in Iraq, and underscored the necessity for the expulsion of the terrorist group.
"I ask the Iraqi government to show no mercy in expelling the MKO members from my country," member of the National Alliance Hassoun Fatlawi stressed in an interview with Shafaq News.
The Iraqi politician reminded MKO's tight cooperation with the former Iraqi regime in quelling the Shiite uprising in the South in the 1990s and massacring the Kurds in the North later, and said that the MKO is still supporting remnants of the Ba'ath regime and cooperating with them in terrorist activities.
"I consider the (MKO) members' remaining on Iraq's soil as interference in Iraq's internal affairs," Fatlawi reiterated, according to a report published by the Habilian website, the official website of Iran's Habilian Association - a human rights group formed by the families of 17,000 terror victims in Iran.
Since the beginning of this year, the Baghdad government has repeatedly assured Iranian officials and people that it is determined to expel the MKO from Iraq by the end of 2011.
MKO's members have two weeks to leave Iraq.
Last Sunday, Iraqi Ambassador to Tehran Mohammad Majid al-Sheikh underscored Baghdad's serious decision for expelling the MKO from Iraq, 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, and reiterated, "The decision is irreversible and definite."
