Iran is seeking to shore up its relations with Turkey, after it has conducted high level meetings with Iraq and Syria in recent weeks. Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif journeyed to Ankara where he met with Turkey’s foreign minister in a joint press conference. Turkey criticized US sanctions against Iran, even as other Turkish officials are in Washington trying to end a crisis with the US.
Zarif said that the US wants to control relations with other countries, hinting that Turkey must not be influenced by US views. “We will not allow the US to question our business with other countries.” Turkey’s Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said that US sanctions against Iran were “wrong.” Turkey has expressed this view before. Turkish Finance Minister Berat Albayrak is in Washington and the Defense Minister of Turkey also recently met his US counterpart
