Iraqi security forces arrested the spokesman of the terrorist Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO also known as the MEK, PMOI and NCR) in Iraq, local media reports said.
According to "Ashraf News" website, Mohammad Eqbal was arrested after the office of the Iraqi prime minister issued an arrest warrant for him on charges of provoking MKO members against the Baghdad government and the terms of the Baghdad agreement with the UN on the presence of the terrorist group in Iraq.
Eqbal has also been charged for resistance against the Iraqi government's decisions, especially evacuation of the MKO terrorists from the group's main training camp, Camp Ashraf (now the Camp of New Iraq).
Earlier in July, Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki and the UN Secretary-General's Representative in Iraq Martin Kobler agreed to put an end to the dossier of MKO's presence in Iraq in accordance with the deadlines announced last year.
According to a statement issued by the prime minister's office, Maliki met with Kobler in his office. During the meeting, the two sides emphasized the importance of cooperation and coordination between the Iraqi government and UN representation to help it perform the tasks entrusted to it.
"They also discussed issues of common interest," said the statement.
