Iran's Intelligence Minister Heidar Moslehi says the Islamic Republic has detailed knowledge of the United States' support for the terrorist Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO).

"We have currently accurate information that the United States and even some European countries provide the MKO with lots of equipment and facilities," Moslehi said on Monday adding that the global arrogance supports the MKO only to keep it alive.

 

Referring to the US decision to remove the MKO from the State Department's blacklist of terrorist organizations, Moslehi added that the Islamic Republic has always considered the terrorist cell an agent of the global arrogance.

 

" Wepredicted that the global arrogance will one day reveal its support for them [MKO] due to advantages it has taken of this group during the [Islamic] Revolution era," he said.

 

Members of the MKO, who have murdered over 17,000 Iranians since the 1979 Islamic Revolution in Iran, fled to Iraq in the 1980s, where they had the support of former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein and set up Camp Ashraf in the eastern province of Diyala near the Iranian border.

 

The group, which is listed as a terrorist organization by much of the international community, has also carried out countless terrorist acts against Iraqi civilians.

 

Iran has repeatedly called on the Iraqi government to expel the MKO, but the US has been putting pressure on Baghdad to resist the calls.

 

Moslehi also referred to Tehran's successful hosting of the 16th Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) summit saying that enemies tried to "create a special atmosphere to say that the Islamic Republic is not in a position to hold this summit."

 

He said that despite threats posed by the global arrogance, Iran managed to hold the summit with very high security which cannot be compared to similar events held elsewhere in the world whose behind-the-scenes are kept secret.

 

"We know about what happened behind the scenes of the [2012] Olympic Games in Britain...but they keep them secret in order not to lose face," Moslehi noted.
