following Erdogan's visit to Iran, two sides signed an agreement according to which Mojahedin-e Khalq and PKK are considered as terrorist groups
Turkey and Iran signed a security agreement here Thursday pledging to jointly combat Turkish Kurd rebels and anti-Iranian fighters, but failed to resolve a series of bitter trade disputes. "I think the security cooperation between the two countries is bearing fruit," Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan told reporters. Iran's deputy interior minister for security affairs, Ali Asghar Ahmadi, told AFP that Iran had agreed to do so, with Turkey in return doing the same for the Iraq-based People's Mujahedeen (MKO). "Both Iran and Turkey have decided to brand the former Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) and (MKO) as terrorist groups, and what was signed today stated that even if they continue to operate under different names, they will continue to be dealt with as terrorist groups," he said. "We both agreed to follow up other security issues," he added, but gave no further details. Turkey and Iran have recently boosted cooperation on security matters, including against the ex-PKK, with Iranian security forces earlier this month launching a major crackdown on their militants hiding in Iranian territory along the border with Turkey.
