Iran says that Iraq has pledged to remove "Kurdish opposition parties" from its borders
This came in a press conference held by the minister today, which was attended by local and foreign media.
During the conference, Abdullahian said, "During the past eight weeks, we had several meetings in Baghdad and Tehran with high-level security delegations from the Baghdad federal government and the Kurdistan Regional Government of Iraq."
And he indicated that "these meetings resulted in several agreements, including a pledge by the central government of Iraq to keep terrorists away from Iran's borders," adding, "We are following up with the Iraqi brothers the practical implementation of the agreements, and if the Iraqi forces settle on the common border between Iran and the Kurdistan Region and ensure security in these areas." Then we will not need to confront what threatens our territorial integrity."
And Abdollahian added, "As long as international laws and the United Nations Charter guarantee the right to defense against neighboring threats, the Iranian armed forces will continue their measures in order to secure the highest level of stability, while the diplomatic apparatus will continue negotiating and dialogue with brotherly and friendly Iraq to overcome this stage."
