Many countries in Europe have come out against the U.S., Israel Saudi Arabia’s aggressive support for the violent opposition protests in Iran.

Turkey and Russia warned Thursday against interfering into Iran amid protests with  Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov urging the U.S. not to interfere into Iran’s "domestic affairs" while Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan’s spokesman also warned against external parties interfering in Iran’s internal affairs, without naming any country.

U.S. President Donald Trump has expressed his support for protesters who have been staging rallies across Iran over the past week against the country's leadership.

President Tayyip Erdogan's spokesman Ibrahim Kalin told reporters during a news conference in Ankara that while Iranian citizens had the right to hold demonstrations, it was not possible to accept acts that cause casualties and property damage, as the protests have left 21 people dead.

The news comes a day after French President Emmanuel Macron warned the U.S., Israel and Saudi Arabia against making hostile statements on the recent developments inside Iran, calling on them to tone down their rhetoric which, he said, could lead to “war.”
