APA reports quoting Press TV that its office was opened on April 11 near the White House and former US Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton and others attended the event.

The European Union and UK delisted the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran(PMOI), one of the largest opposition groups of Iran, from terrorist organizations in 2008 and the US in 2012. PMOI was founded in 1965 against the monarchy of Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi and its supporters in the West, including the United States. The group soon began plotting against the Islamic theocracy, killing dozens of senior government officials, including the president and prime minister. The clerics retaliated with the arrest and execution of thousands of Mujahedeen. Following the 2003 invasion of Iraq, U.S. forces disarmed the group of heavy weaponry and sequestered it in Camp Ashraf, a 14-square-mile former Iraqi military base in the country's northeast.
