TEHRAN, Feb. 02 (ISNA)-Tehran's Mayor in a symbolic move, bestowed honorary citizenship of Iran's capital to Turkey's Prime Minister to appreciate his walkout on Davos meeting.

"Your courageous and wise move in response to nonsense of the occupying regime of Quds' envoy in Davos meeting gladdened hearts of freedom-seekers and freethinkers of the world," Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf wrote in a letter to Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

The world's public opinion admits the righteousness of the measure and Turkish nationals must take pride in such move while many claimants have kept silence towards Israel's war crimes in Gaza, he added.

"As Tehran's Mayor, on behalf of citizens of this city, I take pride and while appreciating the valuable act which came following Turkey's people move in support of Palestinian citizens, I pronounce you as Tehran's honorary citizen."
