Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said Tehran has asked Berlin to explain about presence of the leader of an anti-Iran terrorist group in Germany. The leader of the terrorist group Pejak has recently announced in an interview that he was staying in Germany.
Mottaki described Iran’s ties with the Iraqi Kurdistan as amicable, and said, “Today, there reside good relations between Iran and Iraqi Kurdistan, our border provinces and companies have wide participation in the reconstruction of the Iraqi Kurdistan and implementation of projects in that region.”
He further reminded that some elements always seek to undermine the two sides’ relations, and said, “Terrorist groups always sought to impede healthy relations between the two sides and trouble development and prosperity of the region.”
The minister pointed out that Iran has naturally managed to halt some terrorist moves and tensions in its border areas, saying, “It is necessary to prevent terrorists’ entry to Iran from Iraqi borders and other areas.”
Asked about the next round of talks between Iran and the US over Iraq, the top diplomat said Tehran has not yet adopted any specific decision in this regard.
