Turkish envoy: Turkey gives priority to expansion of ties with Iran
( Irna ) - Outgoing Turkish Ambassador to Tehran Husnu Gurcan Turkoglu held talks with head of Iran-Turkey Parliamentary Friendship Group Ali-Akbar Aghai here Monday.
At the meeting which took place at the end the Turkish envoy's mission in Tehran, Turkoglu told Aghai that his country gives priority to expansion of ties with Iran.
Aghai underlined the need for campaign against terrorism, saying that the US and the UK always try to support enemies of Muslim nations, particularly the usurper Zionist regime, with an aim of undermining regional countries.
Turning to longstanding history and cultural commonalties as well as political and economic relations between the two nations, he expressed hope that mutual parliamentary cooperation will increase more than ever before.
The Turkish envoy, for his part, said that Tehran and Ankara enjoy satisfactory parliamentary ties, which can help expand bilateral relations in other fields.
Turkoglu pointed out that the current stability in regional states has been obtained thanks to all-out cooperation among them and that Iran and Turkey have so far made efforts to boost security in the Middle East.
The two sides also underscored the importance of expanding bilateral ties in all fields including at regional and international organizations as well as safeguarding Muslim nations.
