Mr. Talebani declaring his regret because of the presence of such a group in his country notified that MKO has cause a lot of damage in Iraq including its close cooperation with Saddam Intelligence Services and its direct relation with Saddam in order to commit crimes against Iraqi people.
Mr. Talebani added :" In their attack against Kurdistan, MEK caused much pain to the people, however the document of that invasion can be seen in the high price the MKO paid in Kurdistan, I mean the killing of several dozens of their fighters." he said:" During the last days of Saddam’s dictatorship when the groups of people were going on pilgrimage to Imam’s Shrines, MKO used the opportunity to serve Ba’ath Regime in those last moments and formed a group of mercenaries to kill the pilgrims.
Mr,Talebani declaring his regret again, stated that the group deserves the public and deep hatred which is in Iraqis’ hearts.
