The recent intervention of the Albanian police in the Mujahideen camp in Manza, Durrës, where clashes occurred between MEK members and law enforcement officers, has not only drawn a response from the United States through DASH and outgoing Ambassador Yuri Kim, but has also prompted an official reaction from Tehran.

The Fars news agency refers to a tweet by Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Nasser Kana’ani, who commented on the tense situation unfolding in the MEK camp.

Kana’ani referred to the “Ashraf” camp as a base for the Mojahedin-e Khalq organization, which is considered a terrorist group by the Iranian regime. He emphasized that Albania should take the threats posed by MEK members seriously.

“The elements of the anti-Iran terrorist group Mojahedin-e Khalq (MKO, also known as MEK, NCRI, or PMOI) will always pose a security threat to the host country due to their terrorist nature,” wrote Kana’ani on social media.

According to Tehran, it is precisely the threat posed by MEK members that led the Iraqi government to expel them, while other countries refused to accept them on their territories.

“We hope that the Albanian government will rectify its mistake in hosting these terrorists,” Kana’ani added.
