Honorable Dr. Bernard Kouchner, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of France
Initially we wish to express the sincere gratitude of the Iranian Pen Club for your enlightening response to Written Question of Mr. Jean-Pierre Chevènement. ( published in the OJ Senate 10/09/2009 – page 2110 ) Human rights activists and researches that presently cooperate with the Iranian Pen Club would like to announce, this is a duty and task for whoever is devoted and committed to democracy and freedom to reveal and enlighten the real evil essence and nature of such a Rajavi’s Cult, as you wrote it very well and properly in your response about the MKO.
As you are aware, after downfall of Saddam Hussein’s regime in 2003, coalition forces detained and provided security for members of the Mujahedin-e Khalq an exiled Iranian dissident cult group living in Iraq. At the outset of Operation Iraqi Freedom, the MKO was designated terrorist organization, largely because of its history of cooperation with Saddam Hussein’s military in the Iran-Iraq War and its alleged involvement in his suppression of the Shia and Kurdish uprisings that followed the Persian Gulf War in 1991. Also there is one undeniable fact that MKO and its National Liberation Army (NLA) have been an inseparable part of Saddam Hussein’s Regime and have even participated along the forces of the Deposed Despot to suppress the People of Iraq’s freedom movement in 1991.
Dr.Nuri al-Maliki Prime Minister of Iraq vowed many times that Al Qaeda and Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization and Baath party have always sought to make Iraq unstable and draw attention away from the fact that they are responsible for terrorist activities and killings in Iraq.
Since summer 2003, the Iraq’s government has tried through negotiations with all interested parties, including the leaders of the MKO terrorist cult, to find a humanitarian outcome to the problem of closing Camp Ashraf and expelling its residents from Iraq. Also On June 17, 2008, the Iraqi Council of Ministers adopted a directive stipulating that members of this organization would be expelled from Iraq.
It is in this context that in January 2009, the Iraqi authorities informed the heads of diplomatic missions in Baghdad and Camp Ashraf that it could not benefit from any privilege of extraterritoriality and that it was intended to be closed through a process overseen by international law.As you have answered to Mr. Jean-Pierre Chevènement , "The restoration of the sovereignty of Iraq of course includes Camp Ashraf."
We strongly believe despites of MKO had been using the French soiled for their terrorist activities .but because of vast knowledge and experience of French authority of the MKO terrorist organization for past two decade, that made them the most series elements to prevent expansion of violence and terrorism in France. And they will resist any attempt to bribe and propaganda.
Again, we wish to extend our deepest gratitude and best wishes to you all.
With many thanks and regards
The Iranian Pen Club
