TEHRAN (ISNA) - Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast rejected any agreement with Turkey on deployment of NATO radar system inside the country.
As to Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu's remarks on Iran and Turkey's agreement on deployment of North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) radar system which was quoted by Turkish Zaman daily, Mehmanparast rejected any agreement on the issue.
He added, "Our position is clear on the issue. We continuously propose and pursue our position with Turkish brothers."
Iran has already said that deployment of defense missile shield aims at defending Zionist regime.
Iranian President has already said, "We told our Turkish friends that it was not a correct job (decision) they did. Such shields can't prevent the collapse of Zionist regime."
Turkey agreed to host the radar in September as part of NATO's missile defense system. The radar system aims to spot missile threats coming from outside Europe. Ankara claimed the shield does not target a specific country.
