Turkey’s Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu has singled out United States President Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as the only leaders expressing support to the Iranian protesters, while rejecting any foreign intervention in Iran’s internal affairs, Hurriyet Daily News reports.
“There are only two [world] figures who support protesters: Trump and Netanyahu. We are against such foreign interventions,” Çavuşoğlu told the Ankara bureau chiefs of media outlets at a meeting on Jan. 3.
“I have not seen any other world leader making such supportive statements,” he said.
Both Trump and Netanyahu have shown public support for the anti-regime demonstrations in Iran that have already left behind dozens dead.
