No: 1, 2 January 2018, Press Release Regarding Ongoing Protests In Iran

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 02.01.2018

We are concerned of the news that the demonstrations which started in Iran on 28 December 2017 are spreading and that there is loss of lives and public buildings are damaged.

Turkey attaches great importance to the preservation of peace and stability of friendly and brotherly Iran. Therefore, taking into consideration the remarks of H.E. President Rouhani that people have the right to peaceful protest but should not violate the laws and damage public buildings, we believe that it is necessary to refrain from violence and not to give way to provocation.

We wish peace gets restored in the country as soon as possible and common sense prevails for preventing escalation while inflammatory discourse and external interventions are avoided.
