Turkey calls for return to diplomatic language in Saudi-Iran row
Saudi Arabia has said it would restore ties only when Tehran stops meddling in the affairs of other countries
Turkey’s foreign ministry on Tuesday expressed concern over mounting tensions between Saudi Arabia and Iran following the execution of a Shi’ite preacher, calling for calm and a return to diplomatic language.
“Turkey calls for an end to threats, and a return to diplomatic language, and urges mutual caution,” a statement from the ministry said.
Saudi Arabia cut all ties with Iran on Sunday following the kingdom’s execution of Nimr al-Nimr. It has said it will only restore them when Tehran stops meddling in the affairs of other countries.
