PM: Turkey ready to cooperate with Iran in war on ISIL

TEHRAN (FNA)- Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu underlined his country’s determination to launch serious cooperation with Iran in the fight against the ISIL terrorist group.

“Terrorism is a problem and threat to all the regional and world states,” Davutoglu said in a meeting with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in Ankara on Friday night.

“Today, the ISIL is a common problem and threat against all the regional states and all of them should fight against it beside each other, and Turkey is ready for any cooperation with the Islamic Republic of Iran to this end,” he stressed.

Rouhani, for his part, described Zionism and terrorism as the main problems of the region and the Muslim world, and said all Islamic countries, specially Iran and Turkey, should endeavor to settle the Muslim world’s problems and differences and stand against Islamophobia plots.

“The Muslim world’s problems should be settled by the Islamic states without the interference of foreigners,” he emphasized.

Iran has pioneered in helping the regional states’ fight against terrorism, specially Iraq and Syria, and has offered many regional and world states to cooperate in campaign against terrorist groups.

In relevant remarks on Tuesday, Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei said Iran and Italy can cooperate in the war against terrorism and extremism.

Ayatollah Khamenei made the remarks in a meeting with Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi and his accompanying delegation in Tehran.

“A number of European countries used to support certain violent terrorist groups for some time and today the dangerous and overarching wave of terrorism has reached Europe too,” the Leader added.

Ayatollah Khamenei cited Washington’s financial and arms support for terrorist groups as an obstacle to the eradication of terrorism, adding, “There is authentic and accurate information about aid by the US for ISIL, and certain other terrorist groups. Even now that they have formed an anti-ISIL coalition certain American organs are helping ISIL in one way or other.”

The Leader criticized major propaganda apparatuses in the world for spreading anti-Islam sentiments under the pretext of “actions committed by certain wicked and terrorist” elements.
