Tehran, YJC. Senior Iranian lawmaker has rejected recent remarks by Turkish president on Iran seeking regional domination.

Iranian MP and head of the Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee Alaeddin Boroujerdi said in answer to a question on Turkish President Recep Tayyep Erdogan’s recent claims "If we want to grant Turkish government’s policies as a chain, in the past years there have been numerous such negative links which have met failure, of which Syria is a prime example.”

Erdogan claimed that Iran is playing role in Yemen to create a Shia domination in the region.

For years the Turkish government has armed terrorists and helped with training them, so much so that it has even neglected Iran’s neighborhood right, Boroujerdi stated.

He added that Ankara followed the same policy on Iraq, he noted, adding "Despite the fact that we have always respected our Islamic neighbor (Turkey), which is itself a policy with the Islamic Republic, it can be said that such shifts of position by the Turkish government have never been welcome.”

He further stated that Erdogan’s statement on Iran seeking a Shia domination is quite wrong, pointing out that Tehran has most of all helped fighters from the Sunni sect, such as the Islamic Jihad and Hamas groups.
