Zarif talks with Turkish counterpart on phone

Tehran, July 16, IRNA – Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and his Turkish counterpart Mevlut Cavusoglu talked Saturday over the phone reviewing the latest developments in that country.

The telephone conversation was made after a military coup attempt in Turkey on Friday night.

During the conversation, Zarif was briefed on the latest developments in Turkey following the failed coup.

After the coup in Turkey, Zarif in a twitter post said ‘Turkish people’s brave defense of democracy and their elected government proves that coups have no place in our region and are doomed to fail.’

Iranian foreign minister had also said earlier in his first twitter post that he feels concern over latest developments in Turkey.

‘Stability, democracy and safety of Turkish people are paramount. Unity and prudence are imperative,’ Zarif has stressed in his post.
