Top advisor to Speaker of Iraq’s Majlis al-Aala Seyyed Mohssen Hakim says that the presence of the members of the Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO) in the country can be defined as an international crime, because the organization is not officially permitted to stay in the country.
In an exclusive interview with ICANA, he said, "The security of two neighboring countries of Iran and Iraq is completely intertwined and the Iraqi people and government can no longer tolerate the presence of the terrorist group on its soil."
He further noted that the withdrawal of the US forces from Iraq on late December will have no impact on the security situation on the ground.
"The Iraqi government is capable of establishing security and stability in the country and there is no need to foreign interferences," he added.
He described the friendly relations between Iraq and neighboring countries including Iran as constructive because it can strengthen the country’s ability to foster and create sustainable development.
