ANKARA (Reuters) - Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan on Thursday told his Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani that he found the U.S. decision to withdraw from a 2015 nuclear deal with Iran to be wrong, a source in Erdogan’s office said.

In a phone call, Erdogan also told Rouhani that Turkey wanted the deal to be maintained, after U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday announced that the United States would pull out from the deal.
