Iranian, Turkish presidents discuss bilateral cooperation

TEHRAN  :– Iranian President Ebrahim Raeisi and his Turkish counterpart held a phone conversation on Sunday to discuss Tehran-Ankara cooperation, as well as a range of issues of mutual interest.

During his phone conversation with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Raeisi expressed hope that the cooperation between Tehran and Ankara would lead to securing the interests of the two nations and increasing the unity among the Islamic ummah.

He also emphasized the importance of taking practical steps to strengthen the bilateral political, economic, and cultural relations between the two countries as much as possible, announcing the readiness of the Islamic Republic of Iran to strengthen and promote cooperation with Turkey in the field of energy.

Referring to the barbaric Israeli war underway in the Gaza Strip, the Iranian president said that the Zionist regime does not adhere not only to the UNSC resolution but also to any law.

“Violating more than 400 international statements and resolutions shows the aggressive, law-breaking, and anti-human nature of this regime,” he said, calling for serious cooperation of Islamic countries to support the oppressed people of Gaza.

“In a situation where the US government continues to provide extensive financial and weapons support to the criminal Zionist regime, one of the most deterrent and effective ways to force the Zionists to stop committing crimes in Gaza is to completely cut off political and economic relations with this regime,” Raeisi underlined.

Erdogan, for his part, said that the Turkish government is committed to following up and implementing the agreements made between the two sides.
