BRITISH MINISTER OF STATE FOR THE MIDDLE EAST EMPHASIZES THAT THE MKO IS TERRORIST.
Dr. Kim Howells answered the question of Patrick Mercer, conservative MP Member of Parliament for Newark and Retford, on UK’s stance toward MKO’s military capabilities.
"UK government put the MKO on terror list in March 2001," Howells said. "This list is reviewed and revised every two years, but there is no information on the MKO that can change its status," he added.
In recent months, a number of British politicians supporting the MKO, including Patrick Mercer and Lord Corbett, have tried to take the name of this group out of terror lists in UK, US and European Union. These efforts have failed to date.
