US senators meet with head of MKO

A group of senior US senators has met with the head of the Iranian opposition group Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO), Maryam Rajavi, in Albania.

The delegation of Republican Senators Roy Blunt, John Cornyn, and Thom Tillis had a meeting with Rajavi in Tirana, the capital of Albania, on Saturday. The senators also met with other members of the terrorist group.

Blunt, the junior senator from Missouri, is chair of the Senate Rules Committee; Cornyn, the senior senator from Texas, is the current Senate Majority Whip; and Tillis, the junior senator from North Carolina, previously served as the speaker of the North Carolina House of Representatives.

 

Also back in April, Republican US Senator John McCain met with Rajavi and some other members of her group in Tirana.

In 1986, MKO members fled Iran for Iraq, where they received support from the Iraqi government which settled them in Camp Ashraf, now known as Camp New Iraq, in Diyala Province near the Iranian border.
