Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, for his part, deemed the JCPOA a successful agreement in the world, and stressed the need for collective efforts to preserve it; "Turkey considers the U.S. decision to exit the Iran nuclear deal as a mistake, and has officially stated that it will not accept the USA position at all".

According to the source, the Turkish and Russian leaders also expressed concern over the recent escalation of tensions in Syria, as Israel carried out a massive airstrike against Iranian targets in the country early on Thursday. "Both leaders, pointing out at the fallacy of this decision, stressed that the JCPOA is a diplomatic success that must be safeguarded", the source added. "It was stressed that the JCPOA is of utmost importance for worldwide and regional security and also for the global non-proliferation", the Kremlin said in a statement. "Confirmed the commitment of Russian Federation and Turkey to further cooperation with other members of the action Plan and to coordinate steps in this context", - quotes the message "Interfax".

The presidents also discussed matters related to the Syrian peace process and the implementation of key bilateral projects.

The Iranian President also pointed out that any new USA sanctions against Iran were contrary to global rules and United Nations Security Council Resolution 2231.

Earlier, Erdogan described the USA decision as a mistake, adding that Ankara would never accept it.
