Political Desk

Iran’s President Ebrahim Raeisi in a phone call with his Turkish counterpart stressed that Tehran-Ankara cooperation will bear great benefits for the Muslim Ummah (nations).

Speaking to President Recep Tayyip Erdogan Wednesday evening, the Iranian president said saving Palestinians from the tyranny of the Israeli regime will be Tehran-Ankara “joint agenda.”

During the phone call initiated by the Turkish president, the Iranian chief executive said, “Iran-Turkey relations are beyond good-neighborliness” and stressed that their “close cooperation is a must for the regional peace, stability and security.”

Underlining the need for holding the seventh session of Iran-Turkey Supreme Strategic Cooperation Council in Tehran in near future, President Raeisi noted that Tehran-Ankara cooperation would lead to progress and peace for both countries and the entire region as well and would also benefit the whole Muslim nations.

Formed in 2014, Iran-Turkey Supreme Strategic Cooperation Council aims to facilitate bilateral cooperation and relations between the two neighboring countries in all fields.

President Raeisi further noted that Tehran gives great importance to its cooperation with Ankara at both bilateral and international levels.  

More in the telephone conversation, the Turkish president congratulated his Iranian counterpart again for his victory in the Iranian elections, and said he is confident that bilateral and regional ties between the two capitals “will be reinforced in all areas” under Raeisi.

Noting that Iran-Turkey Supreme Strategic Cooperation Council plays a vital role in promotion of bilateral cooperation between the two nations, President Erdogan hoped he will soon sit down with President Raeisi in the Iranian capital in near future.

He also appreciated Tehran for its contribution to firefighting efforts during the massive wildfire that recently engulfed Turkey’s forests.
