Dr. Khezr Abbas, in his article, argues that MKO has never been opposing the policies of the US
Dr. Khezr Abbas, Iraqi Academician and expert in Middle East political affairs, in his article – which has been published in Al-Zaman newspaper - has discussed Iran and US relations and the consequences of US invasion to Iraq and its impacts on relations with Iran. In a part the article he wrote: "The US has unwillingly given three valuable gift to Iran. Iran got rid of three old enemies, namely Saddam Hussein, Taliban regime and Mojahedin-e khalq organization, by the US. These gifts are for short term, but in long term, Iran will be considered an important power by Russia and China so that it could be relied on in regional political affairs. The US doesn't consider these as gifts, but it believes that removing Saddam, Taliban and occupation of Afghanistan and Iraq will tighten the situation for Iran. But it considers the way of treating with Mojahedin-e khalq as a way of bargaining with Shiite political forces and Iraqi Kurds. It also uses MKO to legitimize military presence in Iraq. But it should be noted that Mojahedin-e khalq organization has never been opposing the policies of the US, and that's why the US have granted legal protected status to it.
