Iraq negotiates with Western countries to accommodate MKO

The Committee for Justice revealed that on Monday the government was in negotiations with some Western countries to accommodate the Mojahedin organization, and accused some Iraqi government negotiations with Western countries to accommodate MKOparties of trying to keep the organization as leverage against neighbouring countries.

The Iraqi government has promised in August last, to end the presence of the terrorist Mojahedin Organization of Iran which took part in killing Iraqis.

In an interview with Shafaaq News the MP Sadegh Al Leban of the Committee for Justice said, "The government rejects the existence of any organization on its territory which works against the neighbouring countries, including the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran, which stained its hands with the blood of the people," stressing that "the Government was exerting pressure such as to remove the organization from the country."

The Government of Iraq changed the name of Ashraf camp to Camp New Iraq after taking over responsibility from U.S. troops for the garrison which was established by the Mojahedin-e Khalq during the era of the former regime in the eighties and during the first Gulf War.

Al Leban said that "the government is negotiating with some Western countries to receive the organization in their own lands because it has become undesirable on Iraqi soil", pointing out that "some actors have a hidden agenda, trying to keep the Mojahedin organization and use it as leverage against the government and countries neighbouring Iraq.
