Last week, four US military officials stationed in Iraqi’s Kurdistan Region met with members of the PJAK and Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) along with a representative from the Iraqi Kurdistan’s Democrat Party, a Press TV correspondent reported.
In the meeting, the US military officials promised to supply PJAK with weapons and financial aid.
The US has also provided the terrorist group with remote-controlled mines and advanced communications equipment.
Members of the PJAK terrorist group — an offshoot of the PKK — regularly engage in armed clashes with Iranian security forces along the country’s western borders with Iraq’s semi-autonomous Kurdistan region.

The US has recently opened a consulate in the north of Iraq, and American military forces have been deployed to numerous bases in the Iraqi Kurdistan Region.
