The Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General (SRSG) for Iraq, Martin Kobler, expressed concern about the terrorist Mojahedin-Khalq Organization (MKO)'s resistance against a relocation of its members from its main training base in Camp Ashraf to a transient settlement facility in Camp Liberty around Baghdad.

    The relocation to Camp Liberty has been stalled since the arrival of the fifth group of MKO members on 5 May.

    "I urge the remaining residents of Camp Ashraf to relocate to Camp Hurriya (Liberty) without delay," SRSG Kobler said. "The relocation process should not be stalled. I am concerned that there will be violence if the relocation doesn't recommence."

    "I also urgently call on States to include residents who are eligible for refugee status in their resettlement quotas and to offer them a path to a more hopeful future outside Iraq," he added.

    The MKO is seeking to transfer its members to another country, but no world state, including the US and the European countries, accept to lodge the terrorist group.

    The relocation process has come a long way since February 2012. Two thirds of the residents have already moved to Camp Liberty, a temporary transit location near Baghdad prior to resettlement in third countries.

    Zionist lobbies are seeking to shelter members of the anti-Iran terrorist Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO) in Azerbaijan as the US administration is trying to station the terrorists in five neighboring countries of the Islamic Republic.

    Authentic reports from sources privy to the MKO disclosed that the US administration is consulting with five of Iran's neighboring states to persuade them into sheltering the MKO terrorists.

    After nearly three decades, Iraq is now expelling the MKO from its soil, while no world country has accepted to shelter the terrorist group.

    The US allies in the Middle-East, including Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Azerbaijan, Qatar and Pakistan, are likely to be the destination of the MKO terrorists, the sources added.

    The sources also pointed out that Zionist lobbies are pressuring the US and Baku officials to station MKO terrorists in bases and desolated air fields, and added that the issue was a topic of recent discussions between Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman and Azeri officials.

    Zionist lobbies are seeking to create Camp Ashraf-like conditions in Azerbaijan to save MKO from complete dissolution.

    The MKO's main stronghold was a training center called Camp Ashraf in Iraq's Northern Diyala province, but the post-Saddam Iraq decided to close the camp specially due to the MKO's massacre of Iraqi Shiites during the Saddam era and its terrorist operations against Iran in the last 33 years. Iraq started expelling the group a few months ago.

    The MKO cannot find a shelter outside Iraq, while it is blacklisted by much of the international community, including the United States.

    Before an overture by the EU, the MKO was on the European Union's list of terrorist organizations subject to an EU-wide assets freeze. Yet, the MKO puppet leader, Maryam Rajavi, who has residency in France, regularly visited Brussels and despite the ban enjoyed full freedom in Europe.

    The MKO is behind a slew of assassinations and bombings inside Iran, a number of EU parliamentarians said in a recent letter in which they slammed a British court decision to remove the MKO from the British terror list. The EU officials also added that the group has no public support within Iran because of their role in helping Saddam Hussein in the Iraqi imposed war on Iran (1980-1988)
