Recep Tayyip Erdogan
There “could be problems” if measures such as sanctions are taken against Iran without seeking a diplomatic solution, Erdogan said in Washington on PBS’s interview.
“We think that diplomacy is what we have to do -- that’s what we have to do because I don’t think diplomacy has been exhausted yet,” he said.
Erdogan, who spoke after meeting President Barack Obama, has said Iran’s nuclear program is “peaceful.”
Erdogan said those who accuse Iran of pursuing nuclear weapons “are talking hypothetically about what is not yet there.” This “is the only thing the world is focused on, and I think that is wrong.”
