MKO is killing time by a variety of excuse to secure a permanent stay
Just following the US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s remarks at a House committee, the terrorist MKO has expressed displeasure over the living conditions at Camp Liberty near the Iraqi capital of Baghdad, demanding for a temporary relocation to another site near the Jordanian border.
Mrs. Clinton had earlier sent MKO a strong signal stating; “Given the ongoing efforts to relocate the residents, MEK cooperation in the successful and peaceful closure of Camp Ashraf, the MEK’s main paramilitary base, will be a key factor in any decision regarding the MEK’s FTO status”. In response to her remarks, the group’s she-guru, Maryam Rajavi, in a Saturday statement claimed that so far, “none of the minimum assurances that (Camp) Ashraf residents had sought has been met.”
Further, she demanded that the residents be relocated temporarily to a site near the Jordanian border instead of being located in Temporary Transit Location TTL. The camp she demanded for had been set up as a tent city to accommodate asylum seekers after the US invasion of Iraq in 2003.
On February 19, some 397 MKO members were transferred from MKO’s paramilitary camp to a temporary location near Baghdad. The move is part of an agreement reached between the United Nations and Iraq in December, which is expected to facilitate the MKO’s complete exit from Iraq. But MKO seems to be killing time by a variety of excuse to secure a permanent stay of the whole organization.
