spokesperson: MKO is a terrorist group
Brussels, April 30, IRNA -- The European Union continues to regard the
Mujahedin-e-Khalq (MKO) group as a terrorist organization, said an EU
"For the EU the MKO continues to be a terrorist group. There
has been no change in the decision," Cristina Gallach, spokeswoman for EU
foreign policy chief Javier Solana told IRNA.
Therefore this consideration continues to be the policy of the EU
regardless of what has been going on in Iraq in recent weeks, she added.
The EU last year included the MKO on its list of terrorist groups.
After the war on Iraq, the US has made a deal with the MKO, known as
Munafiqin (hypocrites) in Iran, allowing them to keep their weaponry and
bases inside Iraq.
The US also considers the MKO a terrorist organization.
