Iran wants EU to take action against armed opposition
TEHRAN, June 13 (AFP) - The European Union should clamp down on Iran's main armed opposition group, the People's Mojahedeen, following bomb attacks earlier this month which killed three people here, Iranian state radio said Saturday.
"Condemning these attacks is a positive step, but it is not enough and they should go further and put an end to the activities of these terrorist groups," said a commentary on the radio.
"The struggle against terrorism" and "the halting of the activities of the terrorist groups" should be on the agenda of a meeting due here next week between EU and Iranian officials, the radio said.
EU foreign ministers gave the green light in Luxembourg on Monday for senior officials from Austria, Britain and Luxembourg to visit Tehran on the EU's behalf on June 20.
An Islamic court building in Tehran was severely damaged in a bomb attack last week which left three people dead and was claimed by the People's Mujahedeen.
The People's Mujahedeen also claimed responsibility for another bombing in the capital and an attack on the headquarters of the elite Revolutionary Guards.
