Tur­key’s Pres­i­dent Re­cep Tayyip Er­do­gan told a tele­vi­sion chan­nel that he will pay an of­fi­cial visit to Iran on Oc­to­ber 4.

Tur­key and Iran main­tain close ties, he told Turk­ish tele­vi­sion A Haber on Fri­day, adding that dur­ing his visit he will dis­cuss re­gional and bi­lat­eral is­sues, in­clud­ing fight­ing ter­ror­ism, with the Ira­nian au­thor­i­ties, IRNA re­ported.

Er­do­gan said that the Iran-tur­key joint eco­nomic com­mis­sion will also be held at the same time.

Prior to the visit, Tur­key’s Chief of Staff Gen­eral Hu­lusi Akar will travel to Iran, ac­cord­ing to the Turk­ish pres­i­dent.

Last month, Chair­man of the Chiefs of Staff of the Ira­nian Armed Forces Ma­jor Gen­eral Mo­ham­mad Baqeri paid a three-day visit to Tur­key at the head of a high-rank­ing politico-mil­i­tary del­e­ga­tion and held meet­ings with Akar, Pres­i­dent Er­do­gan, Turk­ish De­fense Min­is­ter Nuret­tin Canikli and other se­nior of­fi­cials.

On Septem­ber 10, Ira­nian Pres­i­dent Has­san Rouhani met with his Turk­ish coun­ter­part on the side­lines of the Or­ga­ni­za­tion of Is­lamic Co­op­er­a­tion (OIC) Sum­mit in Kaza­khstan’s cap­i­tal, As­tana.
