Standing up to Israel inseparable from Iran, Turkey’s joint agenda: Raeisi to Erdogan

Standing up to Israel inseparable from Iran, Turkey’s joint agenda: Raeisi to Erdogan

Iran’s president told his Turkish counterpart that backing Palestinians in the face of Israel is part and parcel of the countries’ joint agenda.

“Assisting the oppressed and defenseless people of Palestine and saving them from the Zionists’ aggression is never taken off our joint agenda,” President Seyyed Ebrahim Raeisi said while talking to Recep Tayyip Erdogan during a phone call initiated by the latter on Wednesday.

Raeisi pointed to the various capacities possessed by the countries on the Islamic world’s arena. “Tehran and Ankara’s cooperation bears many benefits for the Muslim world,” he said, according to Press TV.

The cooperation brings along “goodness and abundance” for the Muslim world, while also benefiting the countries and the region with “progress, calm, and security.”

Raeisi put this down to the relations surpassing the status of mere neighborliness, asserting that the Islamic Republic of Iran attaches great importance to Iran-Turkey ties.


Turkey upbeat about ties under Raeisi

Erdogan again congratulated the president on the occasion of his victory in the Iranian elections, and expressed certainty that the bilateral and regional ties between the countries “will be reinforced in all areas” under Raeisi.

He also expressed gratitude toward Tehran for its contribution to firefighting efforts during the conflagration that recently engulfed Turkey’s forests.

The Turkish president also expressed hope that the Supreme Joint Cooperation Council that coordinates the countries’ joint work would convene in Tehran soon, saying that he would meet and sit down with Raeisi in the Iranian capital in the near future.
