A spokesman from the
Foreign & Commonwealth Office in London today told Iran-Interlink that the
Mojahedin in Iraq are still in the process of surrendering to and being
disarmed by coalition forces and that this is likely to take some time. This
action is being taken in order to guarantee safety and security in Iraq.
The spokesman went on to
reaffirm that as far as the UK is concerned, the Mojahedin remain a
proscribed terrorist organization and will be dealt with accordingly. No
terrorist organization will be allowed to continue its operations inside
When asked about the
possibility of Mojahedin forces seeking asylum in the UK the spokesman said
that this is a matter for the Home Office but that the UK has clear
guidelines about who is able to take asylum in the UK.
This is in clear
contradiction to some reports which state that the Mojahedin claim they are
being considered as political allies for the future. Some reports have
stated that Mojahedin forces are to be trained and deployed by the coalition
forces in Iraq for intelligence missions.
