A statement earlier this week by Iranian National Security Council Secretary Ali Larijani that the US had met with PKK forces in the Northern Iraq cities of Mosul and Kirkuk has sparked controversy at a diplomatic level.

Larijani, who made this assertion while visiting Ankara to meet with Turkish authorities, provided no documentation of the purported meetings between US and PKK forces.

Meanwhile, Iranian authorities have said that they will provide photographs, telephone records, and other documents which prove that the meeting took place.
 
Yesterday, the US Embassy in Ankara issued a statement denying Larijani's assertions, while Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, speaking in the Turkish Parliament, said "Larijani announced that the US had met with the PKK. Were there any documents provided in connection with this claim?"
