A number of Iraqis have come together to discuss the consequences of the removal of the MKO from the international terrorist Organizations list and its reflections on the country's future. Press TV's Wisam al-Bayati reports from Baghdad.

 

In a conference organized by the Iraqi Center for Media Development, a number of Iraqi officials and ordinary people came together in the capital Baghdad to talk about the efforts of the US government to remove the MKO from the international terrorist organization's list.

 

The tribal leaders criticized the silence of the United Nation's towards this act and said that such step is raising doubts about the US intentions in the region and reveals the US future plans especially against Iran.

 

The organizers showed frustration toward the intervention of the US government in this issue, saying that the US is putting pressures on the Iraqi officials to keep the MKO in Iraq.

 

They said the main motive is to use MKO to launch attacks against the neighboring country.

 

Political observers say that the Iraqi government should take some serious steps toward the expulsion of the MKO.
