A senior member of the Kurdistan Coalition in the Iraq's parliament denies the rumors regarding the relationship between Masoud Barzani, the president of Iraq's self-rule Kurdistan Region in northern Iraq, and the terrorist Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO, a.k.a. MEK and PMOI).

"Masoud Barzani, president of the Kurdistan Region, has no relationship with the terrorist Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization as the group has targeted Iraqi people, and besides the Kurdistan Coalition insists on the good relations with neighboring Iran," Mahma Khalil told Habilian Foundation (families of Iranian terror victims) on Sunday.

 

The remarks comes as Saad al-Matlabi, political advisor to the Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, told Habilian in his recent interview that Barzani was likely to have relationship with the MKO terrorists.

 

Earlier this month, Dr. Habib al-Tarfi, member of Iraq's Supreme Islamic Council, said presence of the terrorist group in Iraq was political and Saddam's security forces had utilized it to murder people.

 

He further explained that Mujahedin-e Khalq supporters are "as corrupt as the terrorist group itself".

 

MKO is known to have received millions of dollars in return for its services to Saddam Hussein, particularly suppression of 1991 uprisings in southern Iraq and carrying out the massacre of Iraqi Kurds.
