US Senators Meet with Members of Anti-Iran Terror Group in Albania

US Senators Meet with Members of Anti-Iran Terror Group in Albania

Alwaght- Three American senators have met on Saturday with the head of an anti-Iran terrorist group, Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO), in Albania.

The delegation of Republican Senators Roy Blunt, John Cornyn, and Thom Tillis had a meeting with MKO's ringleader Maryam  Rajavi and other members of the terrorist group in Tirana, the capital of Albania, Press TV reported.

During the meeting with the American lawmakers, Rajavi welcomed Washington’s hostile approach toward her motherland, Iran, especially the imposition of new sanctions and called for "regime change" in the Islamic Republic.

The MKO has carried out numerous terrorist attacks against Iranian civilians and government officials over the past three decades.

Out of the nearly 17,000 Iranians killed in terrorist assaults since the victory of Iran’s 1979 Islamic Revolution, about 12,000 have fallen victim to MKO’s acts of terror.

Also back in April, Republican US Senator John McCain met with Rajavi and some other members of her group in Tirana, and praised her anti-Iran activities.

He congratulated the terrorist group’s “successful transfer” from Iraq and praised its members for what he described as “sacrifice.”

In 1986, the terrorist group’s members fled Iran for Iraq, where they received support from the then Iraqi dictator, Saddam Hussein, and set up Camp Ashraf, now known as Camp New Iraq, in Diyala Province near the Iranian border.

The terrorist group sided with Saddam Hussein during Iraq’s eight-year war against Iran in the 1980s. The MKO also helped Saddam in his brutal crackdown on his opponents.

In December 2011, the UN and Baghdad agreed to relocate some 3,000 MKO members from Camp Ashraf to Camp Hurriyet. The last group of the MKO terrorists was evicted in September 2013 and relocated to Camp Hurriyet to await transfer to third countries.
