Iraqi Foreign Minister, Hoshyar Zebari says Baghdad has managed to secure the departure of 200 former MKO members from Iraq.
These people who had previously distanced themselves from the cult demanded Iraqi officials to allow them to leave Iraq, Zebari said in a news conference.
He didn't elaborate on whether the former members have returned to Iran or have been relocated to a third country.
Zebari called the MKO a 'complicated problem' for Iraq and said the issue has gotten out of hand due to the support the organization receives from multinational forces.
The foreign minister said the government is still trying to regain control of Camp Ashraf from the MKO which is being supported by the US military.
According to reports 3,400 members of the Rajavi cult are still in camp situated in Diyala Province, 100 kilometers west of the Iranian border and 100 kilometers north of Baghdad near Khalis.
The terrorist group targeted Iranian government officials and civilians alike in Iran and abroad during the early 1980s, killing in excess of 3,000 people. The group also attempted an unsuccessful invasion Iran in the last days of the Iran-Iraq war in 1988.
Incidents linked to the group include the June 1981 bombing of the offices of the Islamic Republic Party which led to the killing of 72 high-ranking Iranian officials including Judiciary chief Ayatollah Mohmmad Beheshti and tens of Majlis deputies.
The following August the group also assassinated President Mohmmad Ali Rajae'i, Prime Minister Javad Bahonar and National Police Chief Ali Dastgerdi at the Prime Ministry building.
