Turkish PM made honorable resident in Tehran
Tehran City Administration Chief Muhammed Bagir Galibaf sent a letter to Turkish Prime Minister Rejeb Tayyib Erdogan notifying him that he has been made an honorable resident of the capital, the Iranian Mehr News Agency reported.
"Erdogan's speech in Davos testifies that he has administrative capabilities," Galibaf wrote in the letter.
Erdogan reacted harshly to Israeli President Shimon Peres's speech while discussing the developments in the Gaza Strip at the World Economic Forum. Erdogan accused him of providing insufficient information on the developments in Gaza and murder of innocent children, and walked out during his speech.
"As head of the Tehran City Administration, I thank you and the Turkish people on behalf of our residents for supporting the Palestinian people and appoint you an honorable resident of Tehran," the letter read.
