Erdogan to Visit Tuesday

At the invitation of President Hassan Rouhani, his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan will travel to Iran on Tuesday at the head of a high-ranking delegation.
A joint press statement released in Tehran and Ankara on Sunday announced that the visit will see meetings between the presidents and ministers of the two countries to discuss bilateral ties and exchange views on regional and international developments.
The Turkish delegation is also scheduled to meet Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, Fars news agency reported on Sunday. The second session of Iran-Turkey Strategic High Cooperation Council is set to be held to be attended by the two sides' cabinet ministers.
The visit has been on the cards for some time but some Iranian lawmakers had called for it to be scrapped last week after Erdogan publicly backed Saudi Arabia's invasion of Yemen.
The political differences between the two neighbors is unlikely to permanently damage a relationship driven by deepening economic ties and according to diplomats and analysts recently interviewed by Reuters, the long-term impact will be minimal as Turkey needs Iranian gas and serves as an important export market for Tehran.
