Turkish Military Mission to Visit

A high-ranking Turkish military delegation headed by Turkey’s Chief of the General Staff Hulusi Akar is to visit Tehran next week.
The visit comes in response to an August trip by Chairman of the General Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Baqeri to Ankara, ISNA reported.  
During that trip, the first to Turkey by an Iranian military chief since the 1979 Islamic Revolution in Iran, Baqeri held meetings with a number of senior Turkish officials, including President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
Baqeri and his Turkish counterpart signed agreements to hold joint training courses and increase counter-terrorism intelligence sharing.
The Turkish delegation coming to Iran is expected to follow up on agreements signed during that visit.
Despite some differences on regional issues, Iran and Turkey are part of a trilateral mechanism created with Russia to maintain the ceasefire in Syria and prepare the ground for the resolution of the lingering conflict.
The trip comes against a backdrop of a secession vote in Iraq’s Kurdistan region held on Monday, which has met with the strong criticism of both Iran and Turkey.
