Ex-EU commissioner says Turkey's UN vote on Iran sanctions right

Guenter Verheugen, former EU commissioner, said on Friday that Turkey had done the right thing in UN Security Council meeting regarding the sanctions on Iran.

Verheugen, who was assigned as advisor of the Union of Chambers and Commodity Exchanges of Turkey (TOBB) on EU and Germany, spoke at a meeting of Turkish-German Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Ankara.

He said that Turkey's decision in the UN Security Council should be a lesson for many people.

Verheugen said that Turkey's good relations with its neighbors were important.

Noting that Turkey's being neighbor to a country like Iran was not a disadvantage, Verheugen said that if Turkey used this neighborhood relation wisely, it might be an advantage in EU membership process.

He said that the EU should support Turkey's neighborhood relations with Iran and other countries, and its role in this issue.
