Iran in addition to being a neighbor, having long joint borders and deep age-old, cultural and political ties is a trade partner of Turkey as well, Hakan Tekin said during the meeting in Tehran.

For the expansion of relations and cooperation with Iran, Turkey will not receive permission from any country outside the region, he added.
