Ashraf City, Iraq, Jun. 18 – More than 5.2 million Iraqis have signed a statement warning of the dangers posed by the Iranian regime in Iraq and affirming their support for Iran’s principle opposition group, the People’s Mojahedin Organisation of Iran (PMOI / MeK).

The statement and hundreds of binders full of signatures were made public at a gathering on Saturday by several thousand Iraqis at Ashraf City, north-east of Baghdad, where the PMOI is based.

“Iraq was driven to the verge of precipice in 2005 by the Iranian regime. The people of Iraq have run out of patience with this regime’s meddling, hidden war and undeclared occupation”, the statement said.

The statement accused Tehran of having “astonishingly infiltrated” Iraq’s ministries, security agencies and public service institutes. “Iran’s rulers want to dominate this part of the world and have turned Iraq into a hunting ground and the frontline of their war with the international community”.

“The Iranian regime prevents the establishment of security, stability and democracy in Iraq and poses an immediate threat to our country’s integrity and liberty. It is the main obstacle to our independence and the quick departure of the Multi-National Force”, it said.

“The solution and the only encouraging prospect for neutralizing these threats come through eviction of the Iranian regime from Iraq and recognition of the status of the People’s Mojahedin Organisation of Iran which is the principle bulwark against the Iranian regime’s interventions”, it said, adding that the disarmament of the PMOI in 2003 upset the “strategic balance in this sensitive region of the world in favour of the Iranian regime”.

While stating their support for the “democratic opposition led by Mr. Massoud Rajavi who struggles for freedom, peace and fraternity in Iran”, the signatories said, “As Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, has announced, the Iranian problem cannot be solved by appeasement or military invasion but by giving support to the Iranian people’s Resistance movement”.

They urged the Iraqi government to develop a pact with the PMOI on the legal and political status of its members in Iraq and reaffirm the right of the group’s members to political asylum in Iraq.
