asked Her Majesty’s Government:

What is their response to the declaration concerning the recognition of the legal and political status of the People’s Mujahedin of Iran agreed at the congress of Iraqi people held in Ashraf City on 17 June.

Lord Triesman (Parliamentary Under-Secretary, Foreign & Commonwealth Office) Hansard source

Any statements or declarations made by Iraqi nationals in Iraq about the legal and political status of the "People’s Mojahedin Organisation of Iran", also known as the Mojahedin-e Khalq (MEK) inside Iraq, are a matter for the Government of Iraq. The MEK is proscribed in the United Kingdom under the Terrorism Act 2000.
