Speaker: Rouhaniˈs Turkey visit to open new chapter in bilateral ties

Ankara, Feb 15, IRNA – Turkeyˈs Parliament Speaker Cemil Cicek said the visit to Ankara of the Iranian President Hassan Rouhani will open a new chapter in bilateral relations.

He made the remarks here Saturday in an interview with IRNA held on the threshold of his visit to Tehran to take part in the 9th Parliamentary Union of the Organization of the Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Member States, kicked off on Friday.

Saying that Turkey is against terrorism in any form, he added that it is not acceptable that the OIC, as the world second largest international body after the United Nations, fails to settle the disagreements existing within the Islamic world.

He said the Islamic countries, themselves, should solve their problems without relying on foreign forces since presence of foreigners would further complicate the issues.

Referring to current states of affairs between Iran and Turkey, he said the two countries also enjoy multilateral cooperation.

He said parliaments of both countries are working to further boost bilateral ties.
