A Spokesperson for the U.S. State Department, Victoria Nuland, said on Friday that U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu discussed Iran during phone conversation.
Nuland told a daily press briefing that Clinton informed Davutoglu on an alleged Iranian plot to assassinate the Saudi Arabian ambassador to the United States Adel Al-Jubeir during the conversation.
Replying to a question on the European Commission’s progress report on Turkey, Nuland said that the United States has been supporting Turkey’s eagerness to join the EU. The United States wanted to see Turkey as a member of the EU, Nuland said.
