Speaking at a joint press conference with his Iranian counterpart, Ahmet Davutoğlu referred to the deployment of a NATO radar in Turkey, stressing that it cannot be used against Iran.
"This is a defensive system, which is part of a NATO defensive system," he said. "During our talks I stressed that this system cannot be used against any of Turkey's neighbors."
The Turkish FM added that public or secretive NATO documents do not refer to Iran as a target.
"We won't allow a strike on any neighbor from our territory; this is our position," Davutoğlu said.
"Iran is unconcerned about the latest sanctions, which are aimed at forcing it to stop its nuclear work," he said, adding that "Iran shall survive the storm."
"Iran, through help from above, was always willing to face such hostile acts," he said. "We're not concerned at all by the sanctions."
