Iran embassy dismisses claims of financial aid to Erdogan's party

TEHRAN, Sept. 15 (MNA) – The Iranian Embassy in Turkey vehemently dismissed a report by the British newspaper Daily Telegraph that Iran has agreed to donate up to $25 million to Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's Justice and Development Party (AKP).

“Such ridiculous allegations” cannot have the least effect on centuries-old relations between the two nations of Iran and Turkey which are linked through cultural and religious affinities, the ambassador noted.

 “It is not unprecedented the (Daily) Telegraph, (which is) aligned to certain circles, publish such fake stories, and it has not aim except damaging neighboring and friendly relationship between Iran and Turkey,” the embassy explained.
