Turkey rejects meeting Russia, Iran on Syria

<p style="text-align:left">Turkey on April 30 rejected a Euronews report regarding a meeting of Turkish, Russian and Iranian Foreign Ministers on Syria held in Moscow over the weekend, Anadolu news agency said in a report.

A Euronews report on April 28 claimed that Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu, along with his Russian and Iranian counterparts, condemned the joint military operation carried out by the United States, the United Kingdom, and France in response to a chemical weapons attack in the Syrian town of Douma earlier this month.

The report also cited that Cavusoglu said a foreign intervention could inhibit the peace process in Syria, Anadolu reported.

Turkish Foreign Ministry spokesman Hami Aksoy said in a statement released Monday that the report &ldquo;is not true and constitutes a mere attempt of manipulation.&rdquo;

&ldquo;Minister Cavusoglu has made no such statement as that [attributed to him],&rdquo; the statement added.
