Turkey's Erdogan in United Kingdom, praises country as 'real friend'

Turkey's Erdogan in United Kingdom, praises country as 'real friend'

The US president said the "defective" 2015 agreement would not stop Iran developing a nuclear bomb and signed a presidential memorandum enacting the US withdrawal.

The Turkish leader is scheduled to meet Queen Elizabeth and British Prime Minister Theresa May.

Moreover, the Kremlin said in a statement on Friday that "they emphasized the importance in principle of the JCPOA for worldwide and regional security, as well as for global nonproliferation".

The presidents also discussed matters related to the Syrian peace process and the implementation of key bilateral projects.

Turkey has "more extensive" economic ties with Iran, including energy imports from the country, he said.

Erdogan on Thursday held a telephone call with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani during which the Turkish leader reiterated Turkey's commitment to JCPOA (the formal abbreviation for the accord).

Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdo─čan, for his part, deemed the JCPOA a successful agreement in the world, and stressed the need for collective efforts to preserve it; "Turkey considers the USA decision to exit the Iran nuclear deal as a mistake, and has officially stated that it will not accept the USA position at all".

Elitas said Erdogan and Ince had a friendly conversation and wished each other success.

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

Trump then vowed that there would be fresh sanctions issued against Iran.
