"Among the most important issues that we have discussed was that we both agreed to activate the talks over demarcation of the border line," Zebari told reporters at a joint news conference with his Iranian counterpart.

The two sides also discussed in details the issue of the Iranian opposition group that Iran wants Iraq to expel, Zebari said.

"The Iraqi constitution does not allow any armed group to exist on our land and launch attacks against another country," Zebari said, adding that the Iraqi government is "determined to deal with this issue."

MKO, a main militant group founded in 1981 with the aim of establishing "a democratic and secular government" in Iran, bases in Iraq's Diyala province in a camp named Camp Ashraf, which contains more than 3,000 members.

The Shiite-dominated Iraqi government repeatedly demands that MKO members be removed from the country.
