In a reaction to certain European countries’ anti-Iran claims

Accusing Iran won't absolve Europe of responsibility for harboring terrorists: Zarif

محمد جواد ظریف

Tehran (ISNA) – Iranian Foreign Minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif in a tweet strongly blasted certain European countries for making recent remarks and claims against Iran.

“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,” he tweeted.

The Iranian foreign minister referred to the Mujahedin-e-Khalq Organization (MEK or MKO), a terrorist group which is detested for collaborating with the former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein during his war on Iran in the 1980s and killing thousands of Iranians in a violent campaign of assassinations and bombings, particularly in those years.
