(AhlulBayt News Agency) - Former Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps and Secretary of Iran's Expediency Council (EC) Mohsen Rezayee warned that the Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO, also known as the MEK, PMOI and NCRI) terrorist group has hatched plots to coax Trump administration into war against Tehran.
"The Monafeqin (Hypocrites, as the MKO members are called in Iran) have claimed that Iran is carrying out new nuclear activities without the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)'s supervision," Rezayee wrote on his Instagram page on Sunday.
"Maybe they hope that with such rumors, they can evoke the fake scenario of the chemical bombing in Syria for Mr. Trump and make him fire a number of missiles at Iran's nuclear centers; they are unaware that repetition of the Syria attack against Iran will put the US in a new quagmire from which the Monafeqin will not survive either," he added.
His remarks came in reaction to the MKO allegations that Tehran is violating the nuclear agreement, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) by “secretly conducting research into nuclear weapons components” at the Parchin military site in Iran.
In relevant remarks today, Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan also blasted the US officials for raising allegations against Iran based on the lies uttered by MKO ringleaders.
He also underlined that the country will vigorously continue development of its missile and defense programs without any attention to pressures.
"The Americans should rest assured that the Iranian nation doesn’t accept humiliation and imposition from any power and will not withdraw from plans to enhance its defense and missile power," General Dehqan said, addressing a ceremony in Tehran on Sunday.
