To ask Her Majesty's Government further to the Written Answer by Lord Malloch-Brown on 9 July (WA 167), whether the fact that the status in the United States of the National Council of Resistance of Iran is a matter for the government of the United States prevents them from co-ordinating with that government their policies towards the National Council.

The US authorities are well aware of the the UK's position towards the National Council of Resistance of Iran and the People's Mujahedin Organisation of Iran (PMOI/MeK). However, US proscription is a matter for those authorities alone.
