TEHRAN – Deputy Majlis Speaker Ali Motahari said on Wednesday that the French ambassador to Tehran should be summoned because of the recent Mujahedin-e-Khalq (MEK) rally in Paris, IRNA reported.

In came after MP Mohammad-Reza Pour-Ebrahimi issued a warning on the issue and said the French ambassador should be expelled from Iran, as his country hosted a group that “wants to overthrow the Islamic Republic.”

The MEK was listed as a terrorist organization by the U.S. and European Union in 1997 and 2002 respectively, but as more efforts got directed to vilify Iran, it got delisted by the EU on January 26, 2009 and by the U.S. on September 28, 2012.
