"When we start adding other countries' armies to terror lists, then serious cracks will occur in the system of international law," Cavusoglu said.
"Trust in the global system will decline and total chaos will ensue." "Our conscience does not accept that the brotherly Iranian people be punished," Cavusoglu said of US sanctions on Iran.
"Such steps put regional stability, peace, calm and economic development under risk." Zarif arrived in Turkey after visiting Syria where he met President Bashar Assad. Russia, Iran and Turkey, which back rival groups in Syria's conflict, have been sponsoring talks in Kazakhstan to try to end the war.
Zarif said he would tell Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan about his talks with Assad, adding that Iran wants to help Turkey and Syria establish "good relations."
The US designation the first-ever for an entire division of another government adds another layer of sanctions to the powerful paramilitary Iranian force and makes it a crime under U.S. jurisdiction to provide it with material support.
