Iranian President Hassan Rouhani left Ankara for Tehran at the end of a two-day visit to Turkey and was officially seen off by Turkish development minister Cevdet Yilmaz, Iran's official IRNA news agency reported on June 10.

While in Ankara, Rouhani met with senior Turkish officials including his Turkish counterpart Abdullah Gul and Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Rouhani accompanied with a high-ranking delegation during the visit, including Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, Minister of Culture Ali Jannati, Oil Minister Bijan Namdar Zanganeh and Interior Minister Abdolreza Rahmani Fazli.

The high-ranking Iranian delegation inked 10 cooperation agreements with Turkey in the fields of tourism, trade, cultural heritage, higher education and postal services.
