FM Urges Iran, Turkey’s Vigilance against Israeli Plots

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian stressed the need for Tehran and Ankara to remain vigilant in countering the plots hatched by the Zionist regime.

In comments at a joint press conference with Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu, held in Ankara on Monday, Amirabdollahian branded the Zionist regime as the number one enemy of the Muslim world.

“We consider the fake Israeli regime as the number one enemy of Muslims and the Islamic world,” the top Iranian diplomat said, lauding Turkey’s position in backing the cause of Palestine.

“We are sure that Turkey has never distanced from support of Palestine and liberation of al-Quds and al-Aqsa Mosque,” he said.

“We clearly gave voice to our sensitivity and considerations about the Zionist regime’s moves and the fact that wherever they went, Zionists have been source of crisis and insecurity,” the Iranian foreign minister added.

Elsewhere in his remarks, Iran’s foreign minister said another topic of his talks with Cavusoglu was a recent trip to Iran by the European Union’s foreign policy chief, Press TV reported.

“I briefed my brother Mr. Cavusoglu on the visit to Tehran by Mr. Josep Borrell, the high representative of the European Union’s foreign policy and our agreement to continue negotiations on the removal of (anti-Iran) sanctions,” he added.

“We hope that in the new round of the negotiations between Iran and the opposite parties we would achieve a final agreement, if the United States and three European countries act realistically,” Amirabdollahian stated.

Amirabdollahian arrived in Turkey on an official visit on Monday to discuss promotion of bilateral ties, with a focus on a long-term cooperation roadmap.

Speaking to reporters upon his arrival, the top Iranian diplomat said talks over a long-term cooperation roadmap between the two countries will top the agenda of his trip.
