Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehman-Parast strongly dismissed the allegations by some Turkish media that Iran was involved in the murder of three Kurdish activists in Paris, and said that certain pro-Zionist media are trying to undermine the good relations between Tehran and Ankara.
Mehman-Parast made the remarks in response to some Turkish media reports which connected the last week murder of three senior members of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) at its office in Paris to the Islamic Republic of Iran.
He reiterated that some media and news outlets which are close to the Zionist lobby are trying to undermine the friendly relations between Tehran and Ankara.
“The relations between the Islamic Republic of Iran and Turkey have always been based on mutual respect and good neighborliness, and this outlook has caused Iran to see Turkey’s stability, territorial integrity and security as those of its own”, Mehman-Parast told reporters on Wednesday.
“The Islamic Republic of Iran has always supported establishment of peace between states and peoples and backs up the trend which has started in Turkey”, he added.
“We believe that the trans-regional countries are the most important contributor to and stimulator of instability in the region”, Mehman-Parast said, and continued, “The pro-Zionist media have for years been trying to feed the Turkish public opinion with pessimism about Iran, but they have failed due to the profound bonds between the two countries’ nations and governments”.
