US Backing for Banned Group DenouncedUS Backing for Banned Group Denounced

Iran’s ambassador to the United Nations in a letter to the Security Council last week condemned the US’s support for the banned Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO) and held Washington responsible for acts of terrorism carried out by the group.
In the letter, Gholam Ali Khoshroo said, “The Islamic Republic of Iran strongly condemns the US government’s illegal measures against the Iranian people, including its support for and financing of Monafeqin (MKO) as a terrorist group,” Tasnim News Agency reported on Tuesday.
Slamming the US backing for MKO as a violation of  international law and the UN Charter, the envoy took a swipe at senior American officials, including US President Donald Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani and former House speaker Newt Gingrich, for attending a June 30 gathering of the MKO, which he said is promoting violence against the people of Iran.
