Turkey opposes foreign powers meddling in Iran internal affairs

Ankara, Jan 6, IRNA – Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Saturday that security and stability in Iran is so important for Turkey that his country opposes interference of foreign powers in Iran's domestic affairs.

He told reporters that determination of Iran's fate and any change in its sovereignty should be done by its own people and interference of foreign powers could be a danger for Iran's security and stability as Turkey is strongly opposed to it.

The Turkish foreign minister also assessed as logical and positive the reaction by senior Iranian officials before the recent unrests, and said that the Iranians should keep distance from any violence and foreign provocation and declare their protests through legal methods and fortunately President Hassan Rouhani respected people's right to civil protests.

Recent street protests in Iran had wide reaction in Turkey and many Turkish political experts and officials expressed their points of views on this issue.
