Iranian Deputy FM: Tehran, Ankara to Find Joint Political Solution to Syrian Crisis

Politics - Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Amir Abdollahian in a meeting with his Turkish counterpart Umit Yalcin underscored that Tehran and Ankara would find a political solution to the current crisis in Syria through joint efforts.

"Tehran and Ankara will sooner or later succeed in finding a joint political solution to the Syrian crisis," Amir Abdollahian said during the meeting in Tehran on Tuesday.

"Turkey and Iran are not in rivalry over the regional issues and Tehran always welcomes the development of Turkey's relations with the neighboring states and the Persian Gulf littoral countries, including Iraq," he added.

Yalchin, for his part, underlined that Tehran and Ankara share the same viewpoints on making a better future for the regional countries, establishment of peace, stability and tranquility in the region, safeguarding the territorial integrity and security in Syria and Iraq and uprooting terrorism, and called for continued consultations with Iran.

Given their important roles and influence in the region, Iran and Turkey are in permanent consultations over the regional issues.

Iranian and Turkish officials in a meeting in October voiced concern over the recent bloodshed in Iraq and Syria, and stressed the need for boosting cooperation to find peaceful ways to put an immediate end to such crises in the region.

In a meeting between Iran's Ambassador to Ankara Alireza Bigdeli and Yalcin, the two officials called for regular consultations to expand cooperation between the two governments to help crisis-hit countries in the region overcome their security problems.

The two officials said that consultations and regional cooperation would help the Iranian and Turkish governments to help restore peace and tranquility to the Middle-East.
