Terrorist organizations the Armenian Secret Army for the Liberation of Armenia (ASALA) and the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) held a joint meeting in northern Iraq, the Anatolia news agency reported.
ASALA leader Simon Zakarian, Vazken Petrosyan and three other representatives met with the so-called PKK presidency council which was represented by Nizamettin Tas, Murat Karayilan and Duran Kalkan.
The meeting was reportedly held at the PKK Makhmur Camp. Zakarian said that the PKK’s cessation of its armed activities in order to prevent the execution of its leader Abdullah Ocalan was ignored in Turkey. “If the PKK continues its existing policy, it will not have the right to ask help from Armenia,” Zakarian said.
