Iraqi defense minister has said that the Iraq government is planning the expulsion of members of the banned Iranian terrorist group MKO.
Abdul-Kader Jassem al-Obeidi noted that the terrorists of the Mujahedeen Khalq Organization (MKO) should no longer remain in Iraq.
"According to a newly enacted Iraqi law, nationals of all foreign countries currently residing in Iraq should return to their own countries. Anyone wishing to not return to their country should apply through international organizations," he added.
Referring to the problems of the prolonged presence of MKO elements in Iraq, al-Obeidi pointed out that their presence imposes heavy costs on Iraq.
General al-Obeidi further noted that the details of the MKO expulsion from Iraq will be made public later.
