Tehran, SANA-The Iranian Foreign Ministry expressed its strong rejection of any Turkish military measure in Syria.
Foreign Ministry Spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh said on Saturday that Iran is opposed to any Turkish military action and use of force against Syria.
“Such action will violate the national sovereignty and territorial integrity of Syria, and will complicate the situation and escalate tensions,” Khatibzadeh added.
He said that the Islamic Republic understands Turkey’s security concerns and believes that the only way to alleviate those concerns is dialog, respect for bilateral agreements with neighbors, as well as the agreements reached within the framework of the Astana negotiations.
The Iranian diplomat noted that developments in recent years have shown that military action does not only help resolve existing problems but will lead to humanitarian consequences and complicate the situation in the region.
