Iran FM: Developments in west Asia to be discussed in Turkiye’s visit

The Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein AmirAbdollahian said that the developments in west Asia are to be discussed during Turkiye’s visit.

Prior to leaving Tehran for Turkiye’s capital, Iran’s top diplomat told journalists that today, he was supposed to visit both Moscow and Ankara but because of some regional developments, the trip to Moscow was postponed.

Paying a visit to Moscow is to take place with a bit of a delay, AmirAbdollahian said.

The latest status of the mutual ties will be reviewed during the Turkiye trip, he added.

Turkish President made an official invitation to Raisi to travel to Turkiye, where initial coordination of the trip will be carried out at a high level in Ankara, he noted.

“At the same time, due to the current developments in the region, we had talks with high-profile officials in Syria and Lebanon two days ago,” he further noted.

It is of prime importance to discuss developments in the South Caucasus and important regional issues that ultimately depend on regional security, he stated.

He underlined the importance of the neighborhood policy which is emphasized by the Iranian incumbent President.
