The Iranian Foreign Minister is going to Ankara today

Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdolahian is on his way to Ankara today after his government denied Israel’s “ridiculous” warnings of a possible attack on Israelis in Turkey.

According to a Turkish Foreign Ministry press release, Foreign Minister Amirabdolachian will have “meetings dedicated to bilateral relations as well as current regional and international developments”.

The visit comes just four days after his Israeli counterpart, Yair Lapid, thanked the Turkish government for helping to prevent planned killings of Israelis in Istanbul.

Last week, Ankara announced that eight people had been arrested for allegedly belonging to an Iranian cell planning attacks, targeting in particular a former ambassador, on the eve of Mr Lapid’s visit to the Turkish capital on Thursday.

“We are very grateful to the Turkish government for its very professional and coordinated response,” Mr Lapid said in Ankara on Thursday.

On Friday, however, Iran denied the allegations in a statement issued Friday stating “Similar, baseless allegations concerning Iran’s foreign policy have been made more than once.

In the middle of the month, Israel called on its citizens to leave Turkey immediately because of the “real and immediate danger” it attributed to Iranian agents in Istanbul.
