Embassy calls on Iranians in Turkey to heed state of emergency

TEHRAN, Jul. 22 (MNA) – Iran’s Embassy in Ankara has strongly advised Iranians living in or visiting Turkey to heed the regulations of the 3-month state of emergency declared by Turkish president following last week’s failed army coup.

The Iranian Embassy further recommended Iranian residents or tourists in Turkey to make consultations with reliable lawyers familiar with Turkish laws before signing any contract or conducting any economic activity that would bear financial or legal burdens.

Following last Friday’s failed military coup in Turkey, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Thursday declared a state of emergency for three months, in a bid “to remove swiftly all the elements of the terrorist organization involved in the coup attempt.” Despite the fact that the emergency would give the president and cabinet enhanced power to bypass parliament, Erdogan has promised that it would not be a “compromise on democracy".
