PJAK due to halt its armed activities - Iraqi Kurd official

IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, Sept 3, IRNA -- An Iraqi Kurd official said here Saturday that the terrorist PJAK group is due to officially cease its armed activities as of today.

Referring to PJAK's failed armed operations against Iranian defenseless Kurds, the official told IRNA that the authorities of the Iraqi Kurdistan have warned members of that terrorist group that if they do not put down their guns, the Islamic Republic of Iran will be authorized to fight against them.

Speaking on condition of anonymity, the official said, the Iraqi Kurds are against terrorists and their armed operations, adding, they believe that all disputes should be settled through “dialogue”.

Condemning the PJAK terrorist operations, usually organized inside the Iraqi soil and its Kurdistan territories, the official said the group's armed activities against innocent people living in Iran's Kurdish regions, would demage the Iraqi Kurds' reputation.
