Iranian Principlist MP Nader Qazipour said "If not our old enemy, Turkey is our serious rival, we can say.”
His remarks came in reaction to Turkish President Recep Tayyep Erdogan who recently accused Iran of seeking a regional Shia domination by working in Yemen, Syria, and Iraq.
Erdogan is the establisher of the sinister triangle of Turkey-Azerbaijan-Israel, he said.
"Turkey is the main supporter and educator of the terrorist group Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).”
To revoke or not to revoke Erdogan’s trip to Tehran is within the province of our government’s authority, he said, adding "We expect Mr. Rouhani to give a swift response to Erdogan if he travels to Tehran.”
