US move to designate Iran’s Guards terrorist organization could lead to chaos – Ankara

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu has said the US decision to designate Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps as a terrorist organization is a dangerous development that could lead to chaos, AP reports. Cavusoglu made the statement on Wednesday at a joint news conference with Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in Ankara. He also said US sanctions were harming the people of Iran. Zarif arrived in Turkey after visiting Syria where he met President Bashar Assad. Russia, Iran and Turkey, which back rival groups in Syria’s conflict, have been sponsoring talks in Kazakhstan to try to end the war. Zarif said he would tell Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan about his talks with Assad. Tehran wants to help Turkey and Syria establish good relations, the minister said.
