Mehmanparast said that "As Iran has announced it several times, the issue of closing the Strait of Hormuz is not on Iran's agenda since Iran believes in upholding the stability and peace of the region."

On Wednesday, Turkey demanded an explanation from Iran for the threat by a senior lawmaker to attack the missile defense system in eastern Turkey.

Private NTV reported that Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu made a phone call to his Iranian counterpart Ali-Akbar Salehi and demanded his explanation.

The report quoted Turkish diplomatic sources as saying that the Turkish foreign minister said Turkey is discontent with the threatening statement.

Hussein Ibrahim, vice president of the Iranian parliamentary national security and foreign policy panel, said on Sunday in an interview that "it is Iran's natural right to target the missile defense shield system in Turkey in case of an attack."

The Iranian foreign minister told Davutoglu that the statement is only a reflection of the individual and is not Iran's official position.
