Iran's Foreign Ministry has summoned Jordan's ambassador to Tehran over his country's support for terrorism in the Middle East.
The Foreign Ministry's Department for Middle East Affairs summoned Jordanian envoy Ahmad Jalal al-Meflah on Monday and expressed Tehran's disapproval over the attendance of Jordanian parliamentarians at a rally in Paris on Sunday.
The rally, organized by the Mujahedin Khalq Organization (MKO), was directed at pressuring the European Union into removing the group from its list of terrorist groups.
Al-Meflah, for his part, said Jordanian King Abdullah II bin al-Hussein will not recognize the terrorist group. He added that Tehran's concerns will, however, be conveyed to Amman.
The MKO, blacklisted as a terrorist group by many countries and international organizations, has claimed responsibility for many terror attacks inside Iran.
Members of the terrorist group have also assisted former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein in the massacre of thousands of Iraqi civilians and were transferred to a camp in northeastern Baghdad where they enjoy US protection.
