The lawmaker noted that the US wants to settle MKO members in one of Iran's neighbors like Turkey or Azerbaijan so that it can use them when necessary to carry out acts of sabotage and to create problems.

An Iranian lawmaker has criticized the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon's recent call on countries to grant asylum to the terrorist Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO).

"The MKO terrorist cell is under the guardianship and leadership of the US, and the UN chief has asked UN member states to give asylum to the MKO based on a direct order from this country (US)," said Ahmad Bakhshayesh Ardestani on Sunday.

"Ban Ki-moon took office with help from the West and the US and, therefore, to maintain his position, he has no choice but to follow their orders," the member of the Majlis Foreign Policy and National Security Committee added.

 

"This cell has been reared by Western and particularly US dollars, and has turned into a major challenge for all world countries today. Neither Iran, nor Iraq, and not even the Western governments or the US want to accept the members [of this cell]," Ardestani stated.
