Presidents of Iran and Turkey aid Friday that closer cooperation and consultation between the two countries is needed to address regional issues, including the hostile policy adopted by Israel and the United States toward the Palestinians. 
"Closer consultations and relations between Tehran and Ankara benefit both nations and help augment peace, stability and security in the region," President Hassan Rouhani told his Turkish counterpart, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, on the sidelines of an emergency meeting of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in Istanbul, the president's official website reported. 
Turkey called for the summit after Israeli troops shot dead 60 unarmed Palestinians and injured more than 2,700 during protests on the Gaza border against the relocation of the American Embassy from Tel Aviv to Beit-ul-Moqaddas on May 14—in the bloodiest day of the conflict since the 2014 Gaza war.
