Stating that the trade relations between Iran and Turkey are not enough and the existing capacities of the two countries should be used, he added that trade relations between the two countries can be reached $30 billion. 

The cooperation between the two countries is very important in the security area, he noted, adding that the security of the borders of the two countries is very important and the cooperation of the security agencies of the two countries can play an effective role in the security of the borders.

Stating that the fight against terrorism, drugs and organized crime was one of the most important issues discussed in the meeting, Raeisi said that the two sides emphasized that any form of terrorism must be fought to maintain the security of the borders.

Fight against terrorist organizations of special importance for both countries: Erdogan

The Turkish President, for his part, stated, "Our goal is to reach a trade volume of $30 billion. Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the volume of trade decreased significantly, and it has now reached $7 billion, therefore, I believe that with the determination of the two countries, we will be able to reach the volume of trade of $30 billion. Also, by taking steps in the field of oil and natural gas, we can speed up this matter."

"As you know, we have taken drastic measures in the field of defense industry in recent years and we attach great importance to our solidarity in this matter," Erdogan added.

Stating that according to the emphasis of President Raeisi, the fight against terrorist organizations is of special importance for both countries, Edogan cited.

"We included them, which are a scourge for both countries, in the list of terrorist organizations of NATO, because these organizations cause disruption of stability and peace in any country where they exist, so we must deal with these terrorist organizations in full solidarity."
