Iranian Foreign Minister in a message strongly criticized certain European countries for providing shelter for terrorist groups and nurturing them.
'Europeans, incl Denmark, Holland & France, harbor MEK—who killed 12000 Iranians & abetted Saddam's crimes against Iraqi Kurds—as well as other terrorists staging murder of innocent Iranians from Europe. Accusing Iran won't absolve Europe of responsibility for harboring terrorists,' Zarif tweeted on Tuesday.
Earlier a prominent law expert from Geneva's Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies Reza Nasri disclosed realities as regard People's Mujahedin of Iran [MEK] terrorist organization, saying “The MEK is a terrorist organization - funded and armed by Saddam Hussein - that was until recently designated as such under US law. But it's not a 'regular' terrorist organization. It is one that also has war crimes, crimes against humanity and ethnic cleansing on its record.”
“In fact, the MEK literally acted as Saddam Hussein's Republican Guard’s auxiliary for years and took part in its bloody crackdown campaigns against Iraqi Shia and Kurds. In other words, the MEK is an exceptional terrorist org. with crimes against humanity in its résumé!,” he added.
Meanwhile, Secretary of Iran's High Council for Human rights Mohammad Javad Larijani said that the current European policies in the blatant support of the terrorists such as MKO are against the resolutions of the United Nations Security Council.
'The MKO whose hands are stained with the blood of thousands of innocent Iranian citizens in fact their nature and function are the same as ISIL of course, with the shell of another type,” he noted.
