Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan on Thursday pledged his support for Iran against the sanctions imposed by the United States, Yeni Safak reported.

“Turkey does not approve the U.S. sanctions on Iran since it leads to destabilization in the region,” he said at a joint press conference with Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani.

“Turkey and Iran have many joint steps to take for regional security and an end to clashes,” he added

Erdoğan said Turkey did not allow any entities seeking to harm the security of the country and the region, adding that it would not all allow them in the future.

Ankara and Tehran have a strong will to increase cooperation in this regard, he stressed.

"We will continue to be in solidarity with brotherly Iran at a time when pressures on Iran mounts which we find unjust," Erdoğan added.
