Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said on Thursday that Iran has been trying to dominate the Middle East and its efforts have begun annoying Ankara, as well as Saudi Arabia and Gulf Arab countries.
“It is really not possible to tolerate this. Iran has to understand,” Erdogan told a press conference, adding that Tehran should withdraw any forces it has in Yemen as well as Syria and Iraq, and respect the territorial integrity of these countries.
Turkey earlier said it supports the Saudi-led military operation against Houthi rebels in Yemen and called on the militia group and its “foreign supporters” to abandon acts which threaten peace and security in the region.
