Iranian, Turkish FMs discuss Iraq, Gaza on phone

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and his Turkish counterpart Ahmet Davutoğlu voiced their deep concern over the ongoing bloodshed in Iraq and the Gaza Strip, and called on the international bodies to take serious steps towards eradication of extremism and state terrorism in the region.

In a telephone conversation on Tuesday evening, the two top diplomats laid emphasis on the need for maintaining unity and integrity of Iraq and confronting the terrorist attacks by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) and secessionist moves.

Zarif and his Turkish counterpart also pointed to the savage and brutal attacks of the Zionist regime against defenseless people of Gaza, and reiterated the need for immediate actions of the international organizations and all countries to send humanitarian aid and a halt in inhumane crimes of the regime.

Israel has been pounding the blockaded Gaza for 9 consecutive days, killing at least 200 people and injuring more than 1,400 others.

According to the UN, 77% of the victims in Gaza are civilian and defenseless people.
