TEHRAN – Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavosoglu expressed his rejection of the decision of the United States to impose economic sanctions on Iran and affirmed that his country would not support them, Prensa Latina reported.

Speaking to local media, the foreign minister considered these measures of pressure “unacceptable” and pointed out that “the U.S. does not have the right to compel other countries to join the sanctions against Iran.”

In this regard, he recalled that several countries of the European Union and other states, including Turkey, oppose any type of economic embargo and added that its application “will have a negative impact on the entire region and is extremely dangerous.”
