Visiting Turkish parliament proves Iran's full support for democracy

TEHRAN, Aug. 12 (MNA) – Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif visited the Turkish parliament building in Ankara on August 12, 2016.

Zarif noted his visit indicates Iran’s full support for democracy and for Turkish nation, adding the coup attempt was suppressed as people turned out on the streets to support the government and it proved the public and democracy cannot be suppressed by force.

The presence of Turkish people in the streets to support Turkey's democratically elected president and government, indicates that ‘public will’ overrides all power, he said.

Zarif asserted "as the first country that condemned attempted coup during its first moments the Islamic Republic of Iran will stand on the side of Turkish government and nation."
