EU won’t move Mojahedin-e Khalq

Various news reports in Tehran have spoken of the EU giving as much as $500 million to the UN to help the Mojahedin-e Khalq leave the country.  EU spokesman Michael Mann told the Iran Times the EU has, over several years, given various UN agencies 14 million euros (about $19 million today) to help them interview and register the Mojahedin members, but has not yet given any money to support the group’s relocation since that is an issue for individual member states.  So far, Germany has offered to accept 125 Mojahedin members and Albania 220.
