The MKO anti-Iranian terrorist outfit (Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization) has opened an office in the Jordanian capital of Amman, the Iraqi daily al-Bayyinah reported on Sunday.
The Jordanian government has agreed to develop security cooperation with MKO members upon the request of the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA); the daily quoted informed Iraqi security sources as saying.
The report added security guards at the Amman airport had received orders from Jordan’s Interior Ministry to ease security rules on organization members entering Jordan with Iraqi or non-Iraqi passports.
The Iraqi government has announced it plans to expel MKO members from its soil but has so far failed to do so due to U.S. opposition.
The terror outfit is responsible for the assassination of numerous people in Iran including senior politicians. Furthermore, It was an ally to Iraq’s former dictator Saddam Hussein in his brutal moves to suppress the country’s Shiite population.
Following the U.S. occupation in 2003, the MKO transferred its main stronghold to a U.S. military base known as Camp Ashraf in Iraq’s northeastern Diyala Province.
