Iran denies helping Kurds

TEHRAN, June 2 (AFP) - Tehran Wednesday denied allegations made during the trial of the Turkish Kurd leader Abdullah Ocalan that his Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) has camps on Iranian soil.

Foreign ministry spokesman Hamid Reza Asefi, quoted by the official IRNA news agency, described the claims as "baseless".

"There is a good level of understanding and cooperation on security matters to prevent possible misuse by opposition elements of any country's territory against another," he said.

He said Iran and Turkey had agreements to investigate security matters along their common border.

Claims that the PKK has training and medical camps in Iran "are aimed at tarnishing the cordial relations existing between the Islamic Republic of Iran and Turkey," he said.
