First Vice President Es’haq Jahangiri’s visit to Turkey was postponed because of his tight schedule, Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qasemi announced on Sunday.

Jahangiri was to meet Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim for talks on a range of issues, including the crisis in Syria, Tasnim News Agency reported.
