MKO out IRGC/QF in - DM condemned Canadian “insult” to IRGC Quds Force by placing it on terrorist list

Thursday, 3 January 2013

Ahmad Vahidi said, “Today Canada is following in the exact footsteps of the US and Zionist regime (Israel) . It is regrettable that a country puts all its dignity at the Zionists’ service… These accusations do not by any means affect the Quds Force and its position in the dissemination of Iran’s message to the world.” He added, “We hope that Canadian politicians come to their senses soon and recognize the wicked nature of the Zionist regime.” Canada had removed the Major Iranian opposition group, Mujahadin Khalq Organization (MKO), from its terrorist list and added the IRGC Quds Force (responsible for carrying out special operations outside Iran) to the list. Baqer Husseini, a member of the Majlis Presiding Board, said that “Currently, a limited number of MKO forces are receiving training at US military bases in Afghanistan on how to carry out terrorist operations.” Referring to the US and Canada’s delisting of MKO, Husseini said that “The move by the US and Canada and the support provided to the MKO by the EU are aimed at protecting the remnants of this cell in order to take advantage of them for their own interests.”
