President Ebrahim Raisi says the region does not need foreigners’ meddling because its problems should be resolved through intraregional interaction.
“We insist that the region’s problems should be resolved among the regional countries themselves and through active participation of the countries [of the region],” Raisi said during a telephone conversation with his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Wednesday.
“[Therefore] there is no need for foreigners’ interference,” the Iranian statesman added.
‘Iran-Turkey cooperation to enter a new stage’
Addressing the issue of the bilateral ties, the president then announced that the countries were to hold a joint meeting in Tehran in the near future, and that their cooperation was to enter a “new stage.”
Raisi also underlined the importance of the states’ bilateral cooperation in the area of fighting terrorism, saying, “The chief way of fighting terrorism consists in [according] respect to [various] countries’ sovereignty.”
