IRNA – Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan on Tuesday said that Iran and Turkey dialogue have played a decisive role in resolving many issues in the region.

He made the remarks at the 6th Meeting of the Turkey-Iran High-Level Cooperation Council held via videoconferencing.

Holding the meeting is indicative of the friendship bond between two countries, President Erdoğan pointed out.

The decisions that will be made in the meeting will speed up the broadening of the bilateral relations, he further noted.
