Turkey and Iran strengthen ties of bilateral cooperation

Vaezi and Erdogan discussed different routes of cooperation between Tehran and Ankara in all areas of mutual interest, such as trade and economy.

The head of Iranian President Mahmoud Vaezi’s cabinet and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan met in Ankara as part of the Iranian delegation’s one-day official visit to discuss the need to boost bilateral ties and cooperation.

At the meeting, reference was made to the latest developments in the region and the need for multilateral cooperation to strengthen stability and security in the Asian region.

Another item on the agenda was the upcoming round of the Astanstan Summit, to be held soon in Turkish territory with the presence of the presidents of Iran, Russia and Turkey to address the situation in Syria.

They also exchanged views on the meeting of the Joint Iran-Turkey Cooperation Commission to be held in September.

The political-economic delegation led by Vaezi held meetings with several high-ranking Turkish officials, through whom they transmitted to the government and nation of that country the greetings of the Persian President, Hasan Rohani,

Vaezi also met with the Minister of Energy and Natural Resources, Fatih Dönme, and the Minister of Finance of Turkey, Berat Albayrak, to discuss a way to make the Joint Commission for cooperation between the two countries more efficient.

Likewise, the Persian representative spoke with members of the Council on Foreign Economic Relations and with senior heads of Turkish companies interested in cooperating with his country.

One of the issues discussed concerned the possible obstacles that Turkish companies might encounter in their activities with Tehran.

Meetings between diplomats from both countries have taken place in recent months to strengthen ties and establish cooperation agreements.

A month ago the foreign ministers of both nations met to finalize the signing of the so-called Consultation Plan with the aim of increasing and strengthening consultations on bilateral issues.
