Turkish FM warns about isolating Iran

Turkey has warned Washington against its new sanctions on Iran, saying isolating the Islamic Republic is "dangerous", Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said November 6.

Cavusoglu criticized the United States' renewal of sanctions on Iran's oil and shipping industries, saying it was dangerous to isolate Iran and unfair to punish its people, Anadolu news agency reported.

Mevlut Cavusoglu's comments to reporters in Japan came a day after the United States reimposed sanctions, while temporarily allowing top customers including Turkey to keep buying crude from the Islamic Republic.
