Iran seeks further development of relations with Turkey
Hossein Amir-Abdollahian made the remarks in a Sunday phone call with Turkey’s new Foreign Minister Hakan Fidan, urging more speedy steps toward expansion of ties between Tehran and Ankara.
While inviting Fidan to visit Tehran, the Iranian top diplomat expressed hope that close cooperation between the two neighbors would continue during Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s new term in office.
He also stressed the necessity of collaboration between Tehran and Ankara on regional issues, while emphasizing the need for activating regional mechanisms.
Fidan, for his part, said cooperation between Iran and Turkey must continue on bilateral and regional levels, adding that he will do his best to help develop relations between the two countries.
Amir-Abdollahian had felicitated Fidan on his new post through a tweet earlier on Sunday, describing him as a professional diplomat.
Fidan became Turkey’s foreign minister, replacing Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu, after Erdogan won another term in office in a close competition with the opposition candidate Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu.
Erdogan took the oath of office at the parliament building in Ankara on Saturday, June 3, extending his administration into the third decade.
Iran's First Vice President Mohammad Mokhber, Pakistan's Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev and Venezuela's President Nicolas Maduro were among foreign dignitaries taking part in his swearing-in ceremony.
