Turkish prime minister arrives in Iran for talks

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has arrived in Tehran for talks with Iranian leaders on bilateral ties and regional issues including Syria.



Tehran: Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has arrived in Tehran for talks with Iranian leaders on bilateral ties and regional issues including Syria.

Iranian state television says Erdogan will meet Iran`s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and President Hassan Rouhani during his two-day state visit that began today.

The two countries are expected to sign an agreement to set up a coordination council to handle trade issues in the wake of easing of sanctions on Iran after the historic November 24 nuclear deal with world powers. Bilateral trade last year stood at USD 13.5 billion.

Iran and Turkey have sharp different views on Syria. Ankara hosts Syrian rebels while Tehran backs Syrian President Bashar Assad`s government.
