Mohammad Mohaddessin's remarks on relocation of Iran's PMOI from Iraq to Europe
NCRI - Mr. Mohammad Mohaddessin, chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), commented on Friday on the news that the final group of residents of Camp Liberty were successfully relocated from Iraq to Europe.
Camp Liberty previously housed members of the main Iranian opposition group People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI or MEK).
Mr. Mohaddessin described the resettlement process as a "very big and complicated operation politically, security wise and logistically to transfer all these residents who used to be in Camp Ashraf and Camp Liberty to European countries."
"This happened due to the cooperation of the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI or MEK) and the National Council of Resistance of Iran under the leadership of Mrs. Maryam Rajavi and the help of many Iranians who are living inside Iran and abroad."
"I express the gratitude and appreciation of the Iranian Resistance to all those who were involved in this big operation," Mr. Mohaddessin said.
"It was not an ordinary political operation; rather it was a fight against the Iranian regime. The Iranian regime used every element and every lever at its disposal to sabotage and make problems in this operation."
"This operation took four-and-a-half years. Fortunately with the help of all Iranians and the UNHCR, the U.S. and other relevant parties, we were able to succeed."
"This challenge with the Iranian regime and the victory we had in this operation is an indication that the Iranian regime is in a very bad situation and that the Iranian people and the Iranian Resistance are ready to go forward," he added.
