Turkish PM Meets Iran’s Vice-President


Turkish Prime Minister, Ahmet Davutoğlu, has paid a visit to Iran and attended the press conference with Iran’s first Vice-President Eshaq Jahangiri. During the conference, he mentioned some points that can be regarded as encouraging news for the relations between Iran and Turkey.

Ahmet Davutoğlu said: “Everyone knows well that peace and security will be fulfilled in case of Iran-Turkey cooperation in the region. I reiterated once more that Turkey has stood behind Iranians and will also be under the difficult conditions. Maybe both countries have different viewpoints towards some cases but ancient history of both countries will not change. Such ancient history and civilization can complement each other. We think that cooperation between Iran and Turkey can solve numerous issues existed in the region. Maybe both countries have different opinions towards some issues but joint cooperation can prevent intervention of other foreign countries into the matter.”

His remarks can signal a better future for the relations of both countries. Over the last months, both countries have adopted different viewpoints towards some issues such as Syrian crisis as well as the intervention of Saudi Arabia into the issue, make the relationships of both countries a little bit dusky. Such estrangement took the turn for the worse when Iran, Turkey, and Saudi have adopted absolutely different opinions about the possible way outs of Syrian crisis. Fortunately, the visit as well as the current positions of Turkish officials can boost the diplomatic relationships. It is hoped that such a visit can pave the way for a safer, more secure and stable conditions in the Middle East.

Turkey and Iran as the key players in the process of Syrian peace talks have the capacities to make substantial changes in the ongoing conditions in the Middle East. This especially comes after Iran deal has proved that Iranian diplomacy can solve regional and global issues and resolve Syrian crisis as well. The remarks of Turkish PM can represent that there is political will in taking positive steps towards restoring peace in the region especially in Syria. If such positive steps will had existed in Munich Security Conference, Syrian crisis would have been solved but unfortunately, Saudi Arabia stopped and blocked any developments.

It seems that both countries can make strong relations based on their good relationships over the last years. They can solve all regional issues by resorting to both countries’ good will.
