Tehran, Ankara to discuss recent developments

Turkish Foreign Ministry on Monday said that Iran's Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi will visit Ankara on April 30 to hold meetings with senior Turkish officials on bilateral, regional and international developments.

Araqchi will meet with his Turkish counterpart Sedat Önal to discuss bilateral relations, latest regional and international developments, according to a statement by Turkey's Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

After the US rejected extension of anti-Iran sanctions for its major oil buyers, including Turkey, Ankara criticized the decision and emphasized that it would keep doing business with Tehran.

A few days ago, Turkey announced that it will spare no efforts to convince Washington on the extension of sanctions waiver.

Turkey's Foreign Ministry Spokesman Hami Aksoy said that Ankara is still negotiating with the US officials on the continuation of feeding the refinery Tüpraş with Iran's crude.

The sanctions were imposed on Iran after US President Donald Trump unilaterally announced Washington's withdrawal from the international nuclear deal, also known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). with Iran.

The move received strong criticism from the European signatories who emphasized they will remain committed to their obligations under the deal.

An EU spokesperson on Sunday told Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) that JCPOA's sanctions-lifting commitments are an essential dimension of the nuclear deal.
