Sources in the Saudi opposition said that the US is in secret talks with Saudi Ambassador Adel Al-Jubeir to Washington to ask Riyadh to shelter members of the Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO) after the European countries refused to cooperate with the White House in this regard.
According to "Ashraf News" website, the sources pointed out that the negotiations between the US and Saudi Arabia are aimed at convincing Riyadh to host the elements of the terrorist group on the Saudi soil provided that Washington provides logistical support for the terrorist group.
The sources added that after the United States failed to convince the European countries to accept a resettlement of the MKO members in their territories, it resorted to the Persian Gulf countries, led by Saudi Arabia, to do so.
Yet, the sources mentioned that several Persian Gulf states, such as Bahrain, are both inappropriate places and opposed to the settlement of MKO in their countries.
According to the report, the MKO members in Iraq were "shocked" to see the European countries’ refusal after the terrorist group officially requested the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) to prepare the ground for their resettlement in a European country.
The MKO is seriously seeking to transfer its members to another country, but no world state, including the US and the European countries, accept to lodge the terrorist group.
The US administration has been trying to station the terrorists in five neighboring countries of the Islamic Republic.
Authentic reports from sources privy to the MKO disclosed that the US administration is consulting with five of Iran’s neighboring states to persuade them into sheltering the MKO terrorists.
After nearly three decades, Iraq is now expelling the MKO from its soil, while no world country has accepted to shelter the terrorist group.
The US allies in the Middle-East, including Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Azerbaijan, Qatar and Pakistan, are likely to be the destination of the MKO terrorists, the sources added.
The sources also pointed out that Zionist lobbies are pressuring the US and Baku officials to station MKO terrorists in bases and desolated air fields, and added that the issue was a topic of recent discussions between Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman and Azeri officials.
Zionist lobbies are seeking to create Camp Ashraf-like conditions in Azerbaijan to save MKO from complete dissolution.
The MKO’s main stronghold was a training center called Camp Ashraf in Iraq’s Northern Diyala province, but the post-Saddam Iraq decided to close the camp specially due to the MKO’s massacre of Iraqi Shiites during the Saddam era and its terrorist operations against Iran in the last 33 years. Iraq started expelling the group a few months ago.
To date, almost 1200 MKO terrorists have been transferred from Camp Ashraf to Camp Liberty which lies Northeast of the Baghdad International Airport, in three groups of 400 each, on February 18, 8, and March 20. About 2,000 members still remain in Camp Ashraf. Camp Liberty is a transient settlement facility and a last station for the MKO in Iraq.
The MKO cannot find a shelter outside Iraq as it is blacklisted by much of the international community, including the United States.
Before an overture by the EU, the MKO was on the European Union’s list of terrorist organizations subject to an EU-wide assets freeze. Yet, the MKO puppet leader, Maryam Rajavi, who has residency in France, regularly visited Brussels and despite the ban enjoyed full freedom in Europe.
The MKO is behind a slew of assassinations and bombings inside Iran, a number of EU parliamentarians said in a recent letter in which they slammed a British court decision to remove the MKO from the British terror list. The EU officials also added that the group has no public support within Iran because of their role in helping Saddam Hussein in the Iraqi imposed war on Iran (1980-1988).
