Iran's FM: No new talks until U.S. revises its policy

TEHRAN, Oct. 24 (Mehr News Agency) -- Foreign Minister Manuchehr Mottaki said here on Wednesday that fresh talks between Iran and the United States over the security situation in Iraq require a change in Washington's policy toward Iraq.

The Islamic Republic has so far held three rounds of talks with the United States to help establish security in Iraq, and Iran would consider holding a new round of negotiations once the U.S. policy toward the region is rectified, Mottaki added.

The U.S. and Iranian ambassadors to Iraq met on August 6 for their third round of security talks in just over two months. The first and second rounds of their negotiations were held in Baghdad on May 28 and July 24.

Iran warns Germany over PEJAK

The Iranian foreign minister said that the Islamic Republic has issued a warning to German officials about the presence of some PEJAK leaders in Germany.

Iran is determined to confront any terrorist activities against the country, Mottaki insisted, adding that not every attempt by the enemy has the ability to jeopardize Iran's security.

Iran has repeatedly said that PEJAK, a breakaway faction of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), has regularly launched attacks inside Iran from bases in Iraq near the borders with Iran and Turkey.
