Turkey starts building border wall with Iran
Turkey has begun construction of a wall along the country's frontier with Iran, Dogan news agency said.
According to the report, the Turkish authorities are constructing the 2-meter wide, 3-meter high barrier with portable blocks.
The governor of Agri province, Suleyman Elban, inspected the construction of the security wall today.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced in January plans to build a wall along its borders with Iraq and Iran, similar to the one currently being erected along the 911-kilometer frontier with Syria.
