EghtesadOnline: Turkish Ambassador to Tehran Reza Hakan Tekin has called on Tehran to revoke a recent decision banning Iranian travel agencies from organizing tours to Turkey.
Confirming that a state of emergency has been imposed in Turkey following a failed coup attempt, the envoy noted that emergency rule will not have an impact on the freedom of citizens and it is aimed at preventing similar attempts, reports ILNA.
A coup attempt was launched in Turkey late on July 15 by a group of Turkish military servicemen. Later, Turkey’s officials announced that the attempt was foiled.
Iran’s state-run tourism organization banned the country’s travel agencies from making tours to Turkey until security is improved there.
The coup attempt was followed by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s July 20 decision to announce a three-month state of emergency aimed at taking swift action against those responsible for the failed military coup.
