Turkish FM: Ankara, Tokyo need Iran's energy



Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu says Ankara and Tokyo cannot stop imports of energy from Iran.


Cavusoglu told Japan Times' Wednesday issue that the US measures to isolate Iran are 'unproductive' and, of course, 'extremely dangerous.'

He emphasized that finding sources of energy supplies other than Iran for Turkey and Japan is a very difficult task, and that the pressure of the United States cannot be considered acceptable and demands of the country cannot be obeyed.

He added that sanctions would have no effect on Japan and his country does not care it at all.

Turkish Foreign Minister on his trip to Japan added that if work is to be done correctly, then the dialogue is meaningful and inclusive.
