  • Turkey US decision on Iran deal to cause instability

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, discussed the USA withdrawal from the Iranian nuclear deal on the phone, agreeing that Donald Trump's decision was wrong, a Turkish source said.

Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Thursday evening, may 10, had a telephone conversation.

The Turkish and Iranian leaders also discussed improving bilateral economic relations, the sources said.

"It was stressed that the conservation AGREEMENT is crucial to worldwide and regional security and global non-proliferation regime".

Earlier in the day, Erdogan told Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on the phone that he thought that the U.S. decision to withdraw from the nuclear deal was wrong, and stressed that the accord must be maintained.


The sides also confirmed "Russia and Turkey's determination for further cooperation with other participants of the Plan of Action and for coordination of measures in this context", the statement reads.

"Europe, and in particular the five countries negotiating with Iran, should clearly define their actions and stances to compensate for the withdrawal of the United States in the short time that is left", Rouhani said, as quoted by the presidential press service.

On Tuesday, US President Donald Trump announced his decision to withdraw from the JCPOA, which requires Tehran to maintain a peaceful nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief.

"Iran and Turkey will always stand by each other like two intimate brothers against illegal acts in the global community, and have each other's backs in different situations", said Rouhani, adding that the USA government should not be allowed to force other countries to follow its own domestic laws.
