US, EU refusal to accept MKO a historic humiliation: MP

EghtesadOnline: The US and European Union's refusal to accept members of the terrorist group of Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO) in their soils was a historic humiliation for MKO, senior Iranian MP said on Saturday.

Chairman of the Iranian Parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi made the remarks while commenting on the expulsion of the last remaining MKO members from their camp in Iraq earlier this month, according to IRNA.

The Iraqi Foreign Ministry in a statement on September 11 expressed “deep satisfaction at the relocation” of the MKO terrorists. 

The statement was released on day after 280 MKO members flown to Albania as neither US nor the EU have accepted to allow them enter their soils.

Boroujerdi, said that presence of the MKO terrorists in Iraq was a stigma for the Iraqi government but it was removed with the efforts made by the Iraqi people and its government. 

The MP said that MKO terrorists were responsible for assassinating over 17,000 Iranian nationals. 

Noting that US has pressured Albania to accept the MKO members, the MP stressed that US has once more proved that it is the major supporter of terrorist organizations in the world despite its claims of being a human rights advocates.

Referring to the MKO crimes in Iraq and Iran, he noted that Iraqi nation expelled the terrorists and no major European country or US accepted them.
