Top General in Turkey for Talks

Chairman of the General Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Hossein Baqeri arrived in Ankara on Tuesday for talks with top Turkish military and political officials. The Iranian military delegation was officially received by Turkey's Chief of the General Staff Hulusi Akar. The top Iranian general was to hold meetings with Akar and Turkey's Minister of National Defense Nurettin Canikli. Baqeri was also scheduled to meet Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan during the official visit, Tasnim News Agency reported. The meetings were to revolve around Iran-Turkey defense ties, regional developments, cooperation on border affairs and the fight against terrorism. Iran and Turkey enjoy cordial bilateral relations. Despite some differences on regional issues, Iran and Turkey are part of a trilateral mechanism created with Russia to maintain ceasefire in certain parts of Syria. The cooperation of Tehran, Ankara and Moscow has led to several successful indirect talks between the Syrian government and opposition groups in the Kazakh capital, Astana.
