Iran President: No Way but Friendly Ties between Iran, Turkey to Confront Plots

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani warned of hostile policies against his country and Turkey, and said that the two neighboring states have no way but strengthening their friendly relations to confront enemies’ plots.

“Both countries are located in a very sensitive region. The two countries are big powers in the region and there have always been some enmity and grudge against the two countries even today,” Rouhani said, addressing his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan in a virtual meeting of the high council of strategic cooperation between Iran and Turkey on Tuesday.

“There is no way but strengthening friendly relations between the two countries to overcome these plots,” he added.

President Rouhani underlined the two governments’ efforts to develop all-out ties and regional and international cooperation, saying that bitter incidents have never been able to disturb the brotherly and friendly relations between Tehran and Ankara.

In relevant remarks late in July, Rouhani lauded Tehran-Ankara broad ties, and called for further boosting of cooperation in different fields, especially economy and trade.
