TEHRAN (ISNA)- Iranian Ambassador to Turkey Alireza Bigeli said Iran and Turkey have reached a five-article deal on Syria.

Protecting unity and territorial integrity of Syria, ending civil war and establishing ceasefire in the country as well as providing facilities for Syrian refugees’ return to their homeland are some items of the agreement, Bikdeli told Turkish Star Daily.

He added transfer of human aid to Syrians, finding peaceful solution to Syria, avoiding any military operations in the country and fighting terrorist operations are other terms of agreement between Iran and Turkey.
