BRUSSELS — The European Parliament urged the United States and the UN on Thursday to provide immediate aid to an Iranian opposition group camped near Baghdad since the 1980's.

In a nonbinding resolution, lawmakers asked the European Union to pressure the US government to take the People's Mujahedeen Organization of Iran off the State Department's list of foreign terrorist organizations.

The presence of the Iranian group — also known as the Mujahedeen-e-Khalq — which fought alongside Saddam during his 1980s war with Iran, has long irritated Iraq's Shiite-led government.

The EU removed the organization from its list of banned terrorist groups last year.
