Iran, Turkey Talks on PJAK

Iran-Turkey High Security Commission began a five-day meeting today in Ankara. PJAK and PKK will be the main topics of discussions during the talks.

PJAK, the Iranian Kurdish militant organization operating in Iraqi Kurdish region, yesterday warned the Iranian government that it would start a bombing campaign against targets as far away as Tehran if Iran did not stop its military campaign against the group. PJAK is outlawed in Iran and is classified as a terrorist organization.

“We have the ability to confront Iran inside Tehran,” a member of PJAK political bureau told AFP. “Iran should be aware that we have a long arm that can strike at significant places inside Iran, especially in the northwest reaching Tehran.”
