Turkish FM: allegations against Iran are very serious
Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said that the allegations against Iran (planning to assassinate Saudi ambassador in Washington) were very serious.
Speaking to Anadolu Agency on Friday regarding the U.S. accusations on Iran of planning to assassinate Saudi Arabian ambassador in Washington, Davutoglu said that the allegations against Iran were serious and that the country should take note of the evidence.
"That's the message I gave the Iranian foreign minister today," he added.
Davutoglu said that allegations that a country would engage in an assassination attempt in another country against a third country's ambassador were extremely serious and the issue needed to be treated with the necessary care and seriousness.
"Our advice to our neighbor Iran is to take notice of the evidence that the United States has and to help the legal process in a totally transparent manner," Davutoglu noted.
Earlier in the day, Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi and Davutoglu held a meeting in the Turkish capital Ankara, and then they appeared at a joint press conference.
