Iran criticized Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu for crossing into Syria to visit a purported Ottoman tomb, saying the move posed a danger to the entire Middle East.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran stresses the importance of respecting countries’ sovereignty and regards this move as a dangerous step for the region,” Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham said on Monday, Press TV reported.

She added that the move can further complicate the situation in the region.

Afkham expressed regret that some countries make miscalculations about regional developments.

She stressed the need to refrain from any provocative measure and said, “Compliance with international regulations and respect for countries’ sovereignty are well-established principles that should be observed by all countries.”
