Baku, Azerbaijan, April 17
By Rufiz Hafizoglu - Trend:
The decision taken by the US to include the elite units of the Iranian Armed Forces - the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) in the list of terrorist organizations is a mistake, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said at a joint press conference with his Iranian counterpart Javad Zarif, Trend reports via Turkish media.
Turkey, as before, is in favor of lifting all the sanctions adopted by the US against Iran, Cavusoglu said.
Turkish foreign minister noted that Turkey and Iran have established close ties and intend to increase trade to $30 billion.
Earlier the US declared its intention to include the IRGC in the list of foreign terrorist organizations.
