Turkey PM to discuss regional issues on Iran visit

World Bulletin / News Desk

Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu is set to start his two-day trip to Tehran Friday. The major topics to be discussed during the visit are believed to be bilateral ties and regional developments. 

Davutoğlu is expected to discuss the Syrian conflict and the implementation of the Russian and U.S.-brokered cease-fire that went into force in last week. After the removal of sanctions Iran has emerged as a new center of attraction for the world's largest economies as well as Turkish business that seeks to find new markets. Because of this, economy is also expected to be a major item on Davutoğlu's agenda.

Prior to Davutoğlu's visit, Union of Chambers and Commodity Exchanges of Turkey (TOBB) President Rıfat Hisarcıklıoğlu and his delegation visited Tehran to strengthen business ties. Underlining the importance of the Iranian market for Turkish business, Hisarcıklıoğlu said that Turkey should not lose Iran to its competitors and added, "During our fruitful visit Iran also expressed their willingness to increase cooperation."
