Tehran, YJC. The Foreign Ministry summoned Turkey’d diplomat in Tehran to ask for explanations over unfavorable remarks by Erdogan.

The Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham speaking on Monday said that the ministry has summoned Turkey’s charge d’affaires in Tehran to convey the Islamic Republic’s irritation at recent remarks made by Turkish President Recep Tayyep Erdogan over Iran’s regional policy.

The Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister in Asian and Pacific Affairs invited the charge d’affaires in the absence of the Turkish ambassador.

Last week Erdogan accused Iran of following expansionist policies, stating that Tehran is trying to create a Shia domination in the Middle East.

Afkham further stated that Iran’s strategic approach to the region is healthy cooperation with regional countries to maintain peace and stability.
