TEHRAN, Iran – A top Iraqi official has been briefing Iranian officials on his country’s ongoing problems with militants and demanding help from Tehran in curbing the infiltration of terrorists over the border into Iraq.

Washington has accused Tehran of interfering in Iraq and sending money and infiltrators to foment the insurgency there. Iran has criticized the U.S.-led campaign against insurgents.

Iran has denied the charges but said it did not rule out the possibility that some infiltrators might have crossed its border illegally.
