Turkey's Erdogan to meet with Queen Elizabeth

The Turkish economy minister on Friday said the United States withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal was an "opportunity" for Turkey, insisting there would be no-let up in trade with Tehran.

Turkish president on Thursday said he does not view US withdrawal from Iranian nuclear deal as the "right" decision, according to Turkish presidential sources.

The JCOPA is an worldwide accord won signature of seven countries along with the United Nations, he said.

Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that the preservation of the Iran nuclear deal is of fundamental importance for worldwide and regional security and the global non-proliferation regime.

He described the JCPOA as a seven-party agreement approved by the United Nations, adding "unfortunately, the USA government unilaterally withdrew from this global agreement, and we expect all world leaders to condemn this move".


Mehmet Haka Atilla was convicted after well-connected Turkish-Iranian businessman Reza Zarrab, arrested in the U.S. in 2016, became a government witness and admitted involvement in a multi-billion-dollar gold-for-oil scheme to subvert United States economic sanctions against Iran.

"It was stressed that the conservation AGREEMENT is crucial to worldwide and regional security and global non-proliferation regime".

Turkey and Iran together with Russian Federation have been working closely on the Syrian peace process despite being on opposing sides of the seven-year conflict.

"We believe in this: The stronger Iran gets in this region, the stronger Turkey becomes as well, and the stronger Turkey becomes, the stronger Iran gets as well", he said.

The Supreme Electoral Council of Turkey has announced the names of all presidential candidates in the elections to be held June 24, Resmi Gazete, the Turkish official newspaper, reported May 10.
