French senator and vice-chair of the Senate foreign affairs said supporting MeK is a big waste of time and money.

Referring to the participation of a former top Saudi official in the recent MeK's meeting in France, Nathalie Goulet told Trend News Agency that "we always encourage the countries in the region to establish closer relationship for more enduring regional peace. The recent gathering of exiled Iranian terrorist group in France known as MKO and presence of some Saudi figures hopefully shall not be interpreted as position of current administration of KSA".
Members of the MKO fled to Iraq in 1986, where they enjoyed the support of former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein, and set up Camp Ashraf near the Iranian border in Diyala.
The group has carried out numerous terrorist acts against Iranian civilians and government officials. The terror organization is also known to have cooperated with Saddam in suppressing the 1991 uprisings in southern Iraq and the massacre of Iraqi Kurds in the north.
Goulet said that the MKO is a big imposture and tries to appear as a solution for a replacement of Iranian regime.
"Anyone involved in the regional policy knows that MKO has no foot print inside Iran and have in fact acted as mercenaries against Iranians during the Iran-Iraq War. Even if you dislike the Iranian regime, supporting the MKO will not help to get a new regime. No one in Iran will support MKO as it betrayed this country by supporting Iraq during a terrible war," Goulet said.
She added that supporting MKO will just bring more solidarity among Iranian people and will create more misunderstanding between the two nations.
