Süleyman Soylu told Abdolreza Rahmani-Fazli on Saturday evening that Turkey thinks the US measure is wrong and condemns it.
Soylu said whenever the Americans have an issue, they use sanctions and threats, adding that Turkey firmly stands by Iran.
Congratulating Eid al-Fitr to Soylu and thanking him for his support, Rahmani-Fazli said that the US tries to interfere with the internal affairs of countries through any possible way.
