Tehran (IP)- During his address to the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan called for issues on Iran's nuclear program to be resolved under international law, through dialogue and diplomacy.

Iran PressAmerica: All parties should abide by their responsibilities under a 2015 agreement, the Turkish President noted, highlighting the alarming levels of Xenophobia and Islamophobia in the world. 

Erdogan also called for "sincere" dialogue to settle the growing row with Greece over Ankara's energy search in the eastern Mediterranean, rejecting "harassment".

NATO members Turkey and Greece have been at odds over rights to potential hydrocarbon resources in the eastern Mediterranean and the extent of their continental shelves.

The row escalated last month after Turkey sent a seismic survey vessel to waters claimed by Greece and Cyprus. Tensions have eased slightly after Ankara recalled the ship last week in a move welcomed by Greece and the European Union.

While addressing the United Nations General Assembly via video-conference, Erdogan said "our priority is to settle disputes with sincere dialogue, based on international law and on an equitable basis."

"However, I would like to clearly state that we will never tolerate any imposition, harassment, or attack in the opposite direction."
