We note the remarks of the Spokesperson of the Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs on 8 October 2014, in the context of the motion adopted by the Turkish Parliament, calling on Turkish authorities to act responsibly.

Turkey maintains a principled and responsible attitude vis-à-vis the conflict in Syria which has been continuing nearly for four years and approaches the issue with utmost sensitivity, as is well known by those following the developments.

Turkey will continue to act henceforth in the same meticulous manner and to take necessary measures in the face of threats against its national security on the basis of international law, and has no need to be reminded of its responsibilities in this regard.
