Tehran, Iran, May. 2
By Mehdi Sepahvand, Emil Ilgar - Trend:
Despite many disagreements on regional developments, Iran' s strategy is to approach Turkey with as much positive outlook as possible, Foreign Ministry's Spokesman Hossein Jaberi Ansari at a press conference in Tehran, Trend's correspondent reported.
Ansari said on May 2 that Iran hopes the two countries manage disagreements, come up with the most beneficial arrangements for both sides and help resolve regional conflicts.
Iran and Turkey have political disagreements in the region, especially over the Bashar Asad regime in Syria, supported by Tehran.
Ansari also said that Iran and Canada held their first round of diplomatic talks to improve relations. Canada stopped diplomatic relations with Iran in 2012, calling Tehran "the biggest threat to the global security".
Ansari also said that Iran will adopt a positive approach to re-establishing ties with Ireland if Dublin makes a formal request for reopening embassy.
Ireland closed its embassy in Tehran in 2012 due to what called the "financial problems and economizing in expenditures".
Ansari also said that Turkmenistan's President and some ministers are expected to visit Iran on May 7. He didn't give further information about the scheduled negotiations with Turkmen delegation.
