MP: Iran Has No Limits in Protecting Its Citizens

Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of the Majlis session on Sunday, rapporteur of the National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Kazem Jalali said security and safety of Iranian citizens was of utmost importance and Iranian officials have always paid attention to this point.

Iran has urged the German government to end its support for PJAK leader Rahman Haj-Ahmadi.

Despite Europe's anti-terrorism gestures, the PJAK leader is living in Germany freely and even gives interviews to the media with Berlin taking no action against him.

Meanhile, reports say the US has recently promised to provide the Party for Free Life of Kurdistan (PJAK) terrorist group with military and financial aid.

Last week, four US military officials stationed in Iraqi's Kurdistan Region met with members of the PJAK and Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) along with a representative from the Iraqi Kurdistan's Democrat Party, a Press TV correspondent reported.

In the meeting, the US military officials promised to supply PJAK with weapons and financial aid.

The US has also provided the terrorist group with remote-controlled mines and advanced communications equipment.

Members of the PJAK terrorist group -- an offshoot of the PKK -- regularly engage in armed clashes with Iranian security forces along the country's western borders with Iraq's semi-autonomous Kurdistan region.

PJAK launches its attacks from Iraq's Qandil Mountains in the areas under the control of Kurdistan Regional Government.

The PJAK and PKK had previously laid mines in Sardasht heights near Iran's border with Iraq.

The US has recently opened a consulate in the north of Iraq, and American military forces have been deployed to numerous bases in the Iraqi Kurdistan Region.

Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) deployed 5,000 military forces in the northwest of the country along its common border with Iraqi Kurdistan, and has been fighting the PJAK terrorist group over the past weeks in order to establish security and stability in the area.

Through the efforts of Iranian forces, security has been restored to some extent in the region.
