Iran on Monday strongly condemned a decision by the European Union to remove an Iranian opposition group from its terror list and lift restrictions on its funds, saying the move encourages terrorism. Iran's Foreign Ministry said the hands of the People's Mujahedeen Organization of Iran "are stained with the blood of thousands of Iranian and non-Iranian people" and the EU decision demonstrated what it called the bloc's "double standards" in dealing with terrorism. Monday's decision by the foreign ministers of the 27 EU nations means that as of Tuesday the assets of the group will be unfrozen. It is the first time an organization has been "de-listed" by the EU. The EU decision is sure to further damage relations with Tehran already strained over Iran's nuclear program.
