Senior official urges Erdoğan to read history accurately

Tehran, Dec 11, IRNA - Special aide for International affairs to the Iranian parliament speaker Hossein Amir-Abdollahian in a message said Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan needs to read the history accurately.

"Recent @RTErdogan remarks made me astonished," Amir-Abdollahian wrote in his Twitter account on Friday.

"I wonder Turkish Pres. doesn't know what he said. Mr. President, there's difference btwn neighborhood & expectation for expansionism," he added.

"Please read ACCURATELY the history of #Iran & the history of the Islamic Republic in particular," he noted.

Erdogan traveled to Baku on Thursday to attend a military parade of Azerbaijani forces on the occasion of the liberation of the Armenian-occupied territories.

At the ceremony, which was also attended by Azerbaijan's President Ilham Aliyev, he recited a piece of poetry, including separatist sentiments about the Aras River which runs along the Iran-Azerbaijan border.

Earlier, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh said Turkish envoy to Tehran Derya Örs has been summoned over interventionist and unacceptable remarks made by President of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdoğan during his trip to Baku.

Turkish ambassador was summoned by foreign minister’s advisor and managing director of Eurasia department and was briefed on the fact that Iran is seeking for Turkish government’s urgent response.

The Turkish ambassador was informed that the era of territorial claims and warmongering and expansionist empires was over.

Iran will not let anybody interfere in its territorial integrity and will not compromise over its national security.
