Need for Closer Tehran-Ankara Ties Underlined

Iran’s Ambassador to Turkey Mohammad Ebrahim Taherian highlighted the importance of enhancing bilateral ties between Tehran and Ankara in diverse fields.
Speaking in a ceremony in Ankara on Saturday to pay tribute to former Turkish prime minister, the late Necmettin Erbakan, Taherian said expansion of mutual ties between Iran and Turkey in all arenas, including politics, economy and culture, was among the top priorities of Erbakan, Tasnim News Agency reported.
Erbakan was a Turkish politician, engineer and academic who was the prime minister of Turkey from 1996 to 1997. Erbakan died on 27 February 2011 of heart failure in Ankara.
The Iranian envoy hailed the efforts by Erbakan to boost Turkey’s ties with its Muslim neighbors, Iran in particular, adding that he supported the idea of establishing the D-8 Organization for Economic Cooperation.
Taherian hoped that the two neighboring countries can develop mutual cooperation at regional and international levels.
Established in 1996, the D-8 Organization for Economic Cooperation, also known as Developing-8, is an organization for development cooperation among member states
Iran, Turkey, Malaysia, Pakistan, Nigeria, Egypt, Bangladesh and Indonesia are D-8 members.
