EU diplomats say the bloc has postponed a decision on whether to remove the Mujahedin Khalq Organization from its list of terrorist groups.
A diplomat said on Wednesday that European Union foreign ministers had been expected to review the list of terrorist organizations at a meeting in Luxembourg next Monday.
The issue, however, has been dropped from the meeting’s agenda pending a decision by the British Parliament on taking the terrorist group off the UK’s blacklist, the diplomat added.
The MKO, which is blacklisted by many countries as a terrorist organization, has so far claimed responsibility for many terror attacks inside Iran.
It is also accused of assisting former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein in the massacre of thousands of Iraqi civilians.
