Turkey’s ambassador to Tehran reiterated his government’s   opposition to the unilateral US sanctions against Iran, saying Ankara is expecting a visit of a US delegation that would present new demands regarding economic cooperation with the Islamic Republic.
Speaking at a press conference in Tehran on the second anniversary of a 2016 failed coup in Turkey, Reza Hakan Tekin said Turkey’s policy on the US plan to tighten sanctions against Iran is “quite clear”.
