A senior Iranian legislator hailed the Iraqi Army for its tough reaction to the armed assault and terrorist activities of the Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO), and said Baghdad's attitude towards the MKO should be viewed as yet another failure of the US policies in the region."The Iraqi government's confrontation against the Monafeqin (i.e. Hypocrites, as MKO members are called in Iran) was another failure for the US policies in the region," Ali Borouqani told FNA on Monday. He reminded the United States' dissatisfaction with the Iraqi government's stance and policy on the MKO, and said,
"No surprise the US voiced opposition to the attacks because the White House supports any terrorist group which runs activities against Iran." Noting the terrorist nature of the MKO, Borouqani pointed to the group's black record and long-time hostilities towards the Iranian nation, and reminded that the members of the terrorist group have assassinated a large number of Iranian elites and officials as well as the ordinary citizens.
