Rising Tensions Between Turkey and Iran
NCRI - Turkey has accused the Iranian regime of destabilizing the region. In response, the Iranian regime summoned the Turkish ambassador in Tehran.
The consecutive remarks made by the Turkish officials in Bahrain and Munich have outraged the Iranian regime. The Turkish officials directly accused the Iranian regime of destabilizing the countries of the region and of trying to develop the sectarian policy in Syria and Iraq.
Having summoned the Turkish ambassador in Tehran, the Iranian regime stated objection against the recent remarks made by the Turkish Foreign Minister, Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu in Berlin.
On February 22nd, the Turkish political Analyst, Mustafa Özcan in al-Arabiya TV stated in this regard:" the Iranian regime has been provoking the countries of the region for 36 years. As Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu and the Prime Minister of Turkey, Binali Yildirim stated, the Iranian regime has been violating the sovereignty of nations. Turkey grinned and bore the Iranian regime in the past. Nevertheless, Turkey's interests have been endangered due to the interference of the Iranian regime in Iraq and Syria. Therefore, they can show no tolerance anymore.
The Iranian regime has to alter its approach in the region otherwise the conflict arises among the Iranian regime and the countries of the region such as Turkey, Saudi Arabia and other Gulf states since these countries are directly threatened by the Iranian regime or its puppets that are present in countries like Iraq and Syria."
In the end, Mustafa Özcan added: “the interference of the Iranian regime in the affairs of Arab countries means meddling in Turkey. This interference has endangered Turkey's national security and its paramount interests in the region."
