Ankara Wants Better Ties

Ankara Wants Better Ties

Turkish National Assembly Speaker Ismail Kahraman underlined the need for expansion of Ankara-Tehran relations, especially between the two parliaments.
“I hope Turkey and Iran will expand mutual cooperation, especially in the parliamentary field,” Kahraman said in a message to his Iranian counterpart, Ali Larijani, on Saturday, Fars News Agency reported.
Kahraman also congratulated Larijani on his reelection as Majlis speaker.
In late May, First Vice-President Es’haq Jahangiri underlined Tehran’s willingness to increase mutual cooperation with the neighboring country.
“Tehran-Ankara relations should expand based on the deep cultural, historical and religious ties between the two sides,” he said.
In mid-April, Iran and Turkey signed eight cooperation agreements to upgrade bilateral ties. The agreements were signed in the presence of President Hassan Rouhani and his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan in Ankara.
Under the deals, Iran and Turkey agreed to cooperate in security matters, combat smuggling and boost legal and academic collaboration along with technical research, standardization procedures and judicial training.
