Q: What is your view towards the Iranian opposition Mojahedin Khalq and Mrs. Rajavi, who are residing in France?

Iran – Organisation des moudjahidines du peuple d’Iran (Q&R- Extrait du point de presse du 26 juin 2014)
Q : Quelle est votre attitude à l’égard de l’opposition iranienne représentée par les Moudjahidines du Peuple et Mme Radjavi, qui sont présents en France ?
R : La France n’entretient aucun contact avec l’”Organisation des moudjahidines du peuple d’Iran” qui est connue pour son recours à la violence. Elle n’a pas d’existence légale en France en tant qu’organisation.
Son inspiration violente et non démocratique a conduit plusieurs organisations des droits de l’Homme, tels qu’Amnesty International, à rappeler ses pratiques à caractère sectaire et son refus de renoncer formellement à la violence.
Nous émettons les plus grandes réserves face à l’intense campagne d’influence et de désinformation qu’elle conduit.

Eldar Mamedov, Lobelog FP, May 08 2014: … The good news is that MEK lobbying efforts against diplomacy with Iran are unlikely to succeed. Even with the extravagant funds the MEK has spent on endorsements by political elites, the group’s prominence in the EU is confined only to one part of the EP. The foreign policy decision-making bodies of the EU — the Council of the EU and …
Massoud Khodabandeh, Iranian.com, May 05 2014: … these anti-Iranian hardliners in the USA, headed by Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, already failed in a provocative bid to bring the Mojahedin Khalq’s second-in-command Maryam Rajavi to the US to speak in Washington to coincide with the nuclear talks.
