Respect for sovereignty of nations, Iran’s main policy

TEHRAN, Jun. 15 (MNA) – Brigadier General Abolfazl Shekarchi, a senior spokesman for the Iranian Armed Forces prointing to the recent allegation of a senior Turkish official, said, “respecting the sovereignty and territorial integrity of countries is the main and predominant policy of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Following the claim made by a senior Turkish official on Iran’s support of Turkish military action in northern Iraq against PKK terrorist group, he rejected the allegations and said, “while supporting no anti-terrorist move, Islamic Republic of Iran considers any military struggle in the borders of a third country under the pretext of fighting against terrorism without the permission of the legal government of that country as ‘unlawful and illegitimate’.

Islamic Republic of Iran has been one of the victims of terrorism over the past four decades but will never support moves that violate sovereignty of a country to face terrorist groups.
