Turkey Backs Iran on US-Imposed Sanctions

Turkey supports Iran against the sanctions Washington has imposed on Tehran, seeing the move as “wrong”, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said.

Cavusoglu made the remarks during a joint press conference with his Iranian counterpart, Mohammad Javad Zarif, in Ankara. He said Turkey was concerned about the embargoes on Iran.

“We will continue telling the US that the embargoes [on Iran] are wrong,” Anadolu Agency quoted the minister.

Zarif visited Turkey a day after he met with Bashar al-Assad in Syria. He said the details of his talks in Damascus will be shared with the Turkish President.

“I will submit a report about this talk to Mr Erdogan,” Zarif said. Source
