TEHRAN (ISNA) - Iraqi Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) envoy in Iran Nazem Dabbagh rejected reports that Iraqi Kurdistan region has given land to PJAK group.

"Neither Kurdistan's region nor Iraqi central government has the right to give land to terrorist PJAK group," he told ISNA.

"There are some people who seek to disturb ties between Iran, Iraqi Kurdistan region and Kurdish leaders," he told ISNA.

"There is a joint committee formed by Iran, Iraq and Kurdistan's region and any issue can be discussed in the committee," he added.

"Massoud Barzani himself is sensitive to giving land to PJKA group and he would not accept division of Kurdistan's region in such a way," Dabbagh noted.
