An EU diplomatic source says EU is not going to remove MKO from its terrorists list
The European Union does not intend to remove the anti-Iranian terrorist group Mujahedin Khalq Organization (MKO), from its terrorist list, EU diplomatic sources said here Friday. The comments followed reports that the MKO is planning to hold a demonstration on Monday in front of the EU headquarters in Brussels to call for the removal of its name from the EU terror list. "The MKO has been on the EU terrorist list since 2002. I am not aware of any formal moves to do that (to remove its name). There have no recent moves on this issue,” EU diplomatic sources told journalists. "Some individual politicians have raised questions, but I am not aware of any initiatives to change the names on the terrorist list,” added the sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity. EU foreign ministers are to discuss ties with the Islamic Republic during their formal monthly meeting in Brussels on Monday. The Brussels-based English weekly ''European Voice'' published a full-page, in what seems to be a paid, advertisement titled "Remove People's Mojahedin of Iran (PMOI) from Terror list." The ad claims that ''100 parliamentarians, political figures call for the rally in Brussels on September 13.'' Observers here are however astonished at the ''duplicity'' of Belgian and EU authorities in allowing members of a terrorist group to demonstrate openly. "This makes a mockery of the EU's call for international cooperation to fight the scourge of terrorism,'' commented one Arab observer. "Would they permit Hamas supporters to hold a demonstration in Brussels?'' he asked and answered himself "certainly not." The Palestinian resistance group Hamas is also on the EU's blacklist. Meanwhile, EU Foreign Ministers will discuss Iran over lunch on Monday, the day the Board of Governors of the Vienna-based IAEA will also meet to discuss Iran's nuclear program.
