Erdogan: Joint Action Against Militants Possible With Iran

Turkey and Iran have discussed possible joint military action against Kurdish militant groups, after talks in Ankara last week between Chairman of the General Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Baqeri and Turkish leaders.
President Turkish Recep Tayyip Erdogan made the above statement to reporters on Monday before departing on an official visit to Jordan, Reuters reported.
Erdogan also said a more effective struggle against the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) and its Iranian affiliate, PJAK, would be possible through joint action with Iran.
“Joint action against terrorist groups that have become a threat is always on the agenda. This issue has been discussed between the two military chiefs and I discussed more broadly how this should be carried out,” he said.
