Iranian opposition group eyes Jordan relocation

An exiled Iranian opposition group being forced to relocate from its paramilitary base in Iraq has proposed to temporarily move to the Jordanian border instead of Camp Liberty near Baghdad.
Last month, the Obama administration offered to move the group temporarily to Camp Liberty, which once housed U.S. soldiers.
Iraq wants Camp Ashraf, with more than 3,000 residents, shut down. The issue has evolved into a thorny situation on all sides.
However, the Muhahedeen insisted in a statement Saturday that "minimum assurances" must be met like removal of Iraqi guards from seven positions in the camp for that to happen.
Maryam Rajavi, co-leader of the Mujahedeen, whose political wing is outside Paris, said that camp residents are ready to relocate to the Jordanian border this month.
