RNA - “Stability and security are the top priorities of the Islamic Republic of Iran in the region which will be possible only through proper understanding of the situation and distinguishing stability promoters from anarchists who support terrorists,” Qasemi said on Wednesday.
The Iranian foreign ministry spokesman pointed to the remarks made by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in Bahrain about Iran's role in Iraq, and said, “Erdogan seems impressed by certain conditions, since among the leaders of regional countries, he is totally aware of Iran’s constructive role in stabilizing the region, particularly in Iraq.”
Qasemi reiterated that Iran’s positive role in Iraq is at the request of the legitimate government of the country to confront the terrorist groups whose evil deeds have reached the heart of Turkey too.
Iranian Foreign ministry spokesman addressed Turkish authorities, voicing concern over instability in the region by overt and covert supports for the terrorists and instrumental use of the terrorists to encroach on national sovereignty and territorial integrity of neighboring countries.
The Turkish president in a recent speech delivered in Bahrain had criticized Iran's role in its neighboring country of Iraq.
