The president of Iran in a phone call to the VP of Turkey stressed working toward peace and stability in the region, adding "The new Iranian government will have extensive cooperation with Turkey for improving mutual, regional, and international relations.”
The presidential website reports that Hassan Rouhani on Monday afternoon in a phone call to Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said "We all must try to establish peace, stability, and calm in the region. We must try according to our human and Islamic duties so that bloodshed in the region ends.”
"I hope that God enables us all to settle kindness and brotherhood, instead of aggression, in the region. The cooperation of Iran and Turkey will be much influential in meeting this human and Islamic goal,” Rouhani said.
Erdoğan in turn pointed to the Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu’s trip to Tehran for attendance at the presidential inauguration and stressed the development of Tehran-Ankara relations.
