Iranian Speaker Cancels Istanbul Trip over Turkish Military Operation

Iran Threatens to Reconsider Nuclear Cooperation with IAEA

Speaker of the Iranian Parliament Ali Larijani has cancelled a trip to Istanbul after Turkey launched a military operation in northeast Syria.

Ali Larijani had been invited by his Turkish counterpart to take part in a parliamentary conference in Istanbul.

The Iranian speaker cancelled his trip on Wednesday evening, hours after Turkey launched a military operation in Syria.

Iranian authorities, including President Hassan Rouhani, had urged the Ankara government to avoid taking military action in the Syrian territories.

President of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan says the offensive -which began with air raids on Tuesday- is aimed at removing Kurdish-led forces from the border area and creating a “safe zone” to which millions of Syrian refugees can be returned.
