Tehran Times - - POLITICS -

TEHRAN — Ira­nian In­te­rior Min­is­ter Ab­dol­reza Rah­mani Fa­zli met in Ankara with his Turk­ish coun­ter­part Su­ley­man Soylu on Thurs­day.

“Strength­en­ing the re­la­tions be­tween the two coun­tries, in all cir­cum­stances, is one of Iran’s pri­or­i­ties,” said Fa­zli.

Un­der­scor­ing the ne­ces­sity of work­ing to­gether on re­gional mat­ters, he said, “Re­gional mat­ters must be re­solved by the re­gional coun­tries. We rec­og­nize Turkey as one of the most im­por­tant and in­flu­en­tial coun­tries in our re­gion.”

For his part, Soylu said, “The bi­lat­eral co­op­er­a­tion and steps we have taken dur­ing rough times have not only in­creased hopes but also en­cour­aged and strength­ened us.”

He added that the two neigh­bors have taken sig­nif­i­cant steps over the last two years on co­op­er­a­tion and shared re­spon­si­bil­i­ties.
