  • Besieged Syrians suffer their bloodiest week in years

In the meeting with Mevlut Cavusoglu in Tehran, Iran's president emphasized the expansion of friendly and brotherly relations with neighboring countries, adding Iran wants to strengthen relations with Turkey in all fields.

Cavusoglu visited Iran's capital Tehran on Wednesday for talks on bilateral and regional issues.

He also referred to Turkey's military operations in Northern Syria against the Kurds, and said, "We have good relations with Russian Federation and Turkey but it is our principled position that deployment of a country's army in another country's territories should be carried out with the consent of the second country's people and government and therefore, we want this operation which doesn't yield any results but killing people to stop".

The settlement of the Syrian crisis is also expected to be discussed during the Istanbul meeting.

"Many threats in the region endanger the interests of both countries of Iran and Turkey and other Muslim states", he said.

According to state-run Russia Today, Erdogan briefed his Russian counterpart on the latest developments in Turkey's ongoing incursion into the Kurdish-held canton of Afrin in northwestern Syria.

Elsewhere in his remarks, the Iranian president underscored cooperation between Ankara, Moscow and Tehran with the aim of restoring unity to Syria, eliminating terrorism and establishing peace in the Arab country.

Cavusoglu also stressed the importance of strengthening the regional and global relations between Iran and Turkey, adding that the Islamic Cooperation Organization meeting in Istanbul with good support from Iran led to the failure of the conspiracy against the region.
