Ankara distances itself from anti-Iran comments of advisor

Emrullah Isler [who caused a stir earlier this month by accusing Iran of doing more harm to the world of Islam than Israel because of its involvement in Syria and Yemen] does not hold an official position in the Turkish government, said a spokesman of President Erdogan in a meeting with the Iranian ambassador to Turkey.

Ibrahim Kalin said that he had no knowledge of Isler’s comments, adding, Isler is not authorized to reflect any idea on behalf of Turkish officials.
