Iran and Turkey are talking about economic partnership


Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif arrived to Istanbul to discuss economic cooperation with Turkey. This was reported by Reuters with reference to Iranian television.

“Iran wants to discuss broader economic cooperation with its neighbor Turkey during the negotiations in Istanbul on Saturday,” – said in a statement.

Zarif is scheduled to meet with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu, and Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu to discuss relations between the two countries and the latest regional and international events.

“We strive to achieve the highest level of economic cooperation with Turkey after the agreement on the nuclear program,” – said the Minister.

Despite the fact that Iran and Turkey are on different sides of the armed conflict in Syria and Yemen, their economic interdependence maintains the balance in relations between the two countries.

Earlier, at a meeting in Tehran, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and Prime Minister of Turkey Davutoğlu agreed on cooperation in support of the ceasefire in Syria.
