Lawmaker warns nationals to avoid unnecessary trips to Turkey

Bakhtiar made the remarks in an interview with ICANA.

The lawmaker urges citizens to avoid unnecessary trips to Turkey during the upcoming Nowruz holidays.

Given the security conditions in Turkey in recent months and concerns for safety of Iranian citizens, he said so far Iran’s Foreign Ministry has issued a statements warning Iranians about traveling to Turkey.

The lawmaker also advised Iranians to visit Iranian tourism attractions and sites for sake of the country economy development.

The lawmaker recommended the Iranian citizens who intend to visit Turkey to avoid making unnecessary trips and take all necessary measures if the visit is unavoidable.

Meanwhile on March 12, the Iranian foreign ministry issued a warning, urging the country's nationals to avoid unnecessary trips to Turkey in the upcoming holidays.

"In the wake of the New Year vacations, the Iranian nationals are advised not to travel to Turkey due to emergency conditions in the neighboring country," the statement said.

The statement said that given that new year holidays are approaching and the Iranians are planning to travel abroad and also in view of the security conditions of Turkey in recent months and concerns over safety of Iranian citizens in the neighboring country, all nationals who intend to visit Turkey are strongly recommended to avoid making unnecessary trips and take all necessary precautions.

In a relevant development, the Iranian consulate in Istanbul in a statement warned the country's citizens to avoid taking unnecessary visits to Turkey.

"Turkey currently is not a safe place and we generally advise Iranians to postpone their visits to Istanbul and Ankara if they can," the consulate said in its statement.

The consulate said that the Iranians seeking to receive EU visa or travel as refugees or immigrants, are often victims of the swindlers and forgers which cost then a lot.

The Turkish cities of Ankara and Istanbul have been the scenes of terrorist attacks in recent months.

In a relevant development in early January, the Iranian Embassy in Ankara in a statement condemned the recent terrorist attack in the city of Istanbul which had resulted death and injury of tens of civilians.

Assailants believed to have been dressed in Santa Claus costumes opened fire at a crowded nightclub in Istanbul during New Year's celebrations, killing at least 39 people and wounding close to 70 others in what the province's governor described as a terror attack.
