Iran condemns Saudi’s unwise measure to support anti-Iran MKO terrorists


July 10,  The Iran Project – The Iranian Supreme Leader’s Deputy Representative at the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps denounced the unwise measure of Saudi Arabia’s former spy chief to support the anti-Iran terrorist Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization’s (MKO).
Referring to Saudi Arabia’s former spy chief Turki al-Faisal’s participation in the MKO gathering in Paris and his unequivocal proclamations of support for the anti-Iran terrorist group, Brigadier General Mohammad Ali Asoudi said on Saturday that Al Saud regime, which has recently experienced some heavy defeats in the region, intends to blow the Islamic Republic of Iran by supporting the most hated terrorist group among the Iranians.
The General further compared the Saudi Arabia’s unwise measure to the imprudent actions of former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein in the last years of his reign, adding that Saudis should be wise enough not to support a group who has a dark history of assassinations and bombings.
Saudi Arabia’s former spy chief Turki al-Faisal attended an annual meeting of the MKO terrorist group which was held in the French capital, Paris, making hostile remarks against Tehran and vowed to stand by the MKO in what he described as the terrorist outfit’s efforts against the Iranian establishment.
Reacting on Sunday, Former Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian said Faisal’s participation in the MKO gathering proved Riyadh’s extensive support for terrorism.
A source at Iran’s Foreign Ministry also condemned the Saudi regime for participating in the gathering, saying that the move was not unusual for “the father of the Taliban and Al-Qaeda”.
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 attacks since the victory of Iran’s Islamic Revolution, about 12,000 have fallen victim to MKO’s acts of terror.
