Iran, Turkey stand together
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says Iran and Turkey have common interests and stand together in the international arena to carry out “constructive missions.”
“Safeguarding the security of the region and making joint efforts to affect the world order in a positive way are the main responsibilities of the two countries,” Ahmadinejad said on Wednesday during a meeting with the new Turkish ambassador to Iran, Umit Yardim.
Ahmadinejad stated that Iran and Turkey have common interests and have adopted “very similar” stances toward international issues, IRNA reported.
Iran and Turkey are the most reliable countries for all the world’s Muslims and they are helping to realize the goals of Islam, he added.
Ambassador Yardim, who presented his credentials to the Iranian president at the meeting, said that Turkey is determined to boost its ties with Iran.
