Iran rejects reports on talks with US about ISIL

TEHRAN (ISNA)- Iranian embassy in Azerbaijan rejected media reports that Iran and the US have held talks on the terrorist group known as the so-called the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) in Baku.

“There have been no talks between Iran and the US in Baku,” said Director of the Media Section of the Iranian Embassy in Baku Mohammad Ayatollahi.

Some media have recently said that Iranian and the US officials have had a secret meeting in Baku on the ISIL.

The Takfiri militants have seized swathes of land in Iraq and Syria. They have carried out horrific acts of violence in the two countries, including public decapitations. ISIL has also killed people from Shia, Sunni, Kurd, Christian, and Izadi Kurd communities in Iraq.

Western powers and some of their regional allies – especially Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey – are reportedly supporting the militants.
