Baku, Azerbaijan, Jan. 6

By Rufiz Hafizoglu – Trend:

Tehran and Riyadh shouldn’t aggravate relations, as this can lead to negative consequences for the region, the Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said, the Turkish TRT Haber TV channel reported Jan. 6.

Relations between Saudi Arabia and Iran soured after execution of Nimr al-Nimr, a prominent Shia cleric, by the Kingdom along with other 46 people, which was followed by a strong protest from Iran.

Mass protests took place in Iran following the execution. In particular, the Saudi embassy in the capital Tehran and the consulate in the city of Mashhad were attacked, after which Riyadh broke off diplomatic ties with Tehran on Jan. 3.

Saudi Arabia’s permanent representative to the United Nations Abdullah al-Moallem said that relations with Iran will be restored only when Tehran stops “interfering in the internal affairs of other countries, including that of Saudi Arabia’s”.

Meanwhile, Turkey’s Foreign Ministry expressed concern about the attacks on Saudi diplomatic missions in Iran and described the attacks as “unacceptable.”

The ministry also called for Iran and Saudi Arabia to be “careful” and use the language of diplomacy rather than threats.
