A gov’t with CHP would help peace prevail in Middle East: Iranian envoy
A coalition government that would include the Republican People's Party (CHP) would surely help peace and stability prevail in the Middle East, Iranian envoy has said Hurriyet Daily news reported
"Any government option that includes the CHP would be very important for the peace and stability of the Middle East. It would also contribute the settlement of the Syrian issue," Iranian Ambassador to Turkey, Ali Riza Bikdeli, told CHP chairman Kemal Kiliçdaroglu at a fast-breaking dinner on July 16. Bikdeli hosted Kiliçdaroglu and his top aides at his residence.
According to sources, Kiliçdaroglu informed the envoy about his meeting with Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu as part of coalition talks. He also congratulated Iran for the historic nuclear deal with the world powers. CHP leader stressed the importance of Iran's inclusion to international efforts for the resolution of the Syrian problem.
For his part, Bikdeli underlined the need of boosting economic and trade ties between the two countries especially after sanctions will be removed and renewed his calls for Turkish entrepreneurs and investors to explore growing Iranian market.
