Erdogan in Tehran

[A footage about Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s recent trip to Tehran. He was welcomed officially by President Hassan Rouhnani at Sadabad complex. Both countries intended to discuss a joint response against Kurdish votes for independence and secession in Iraq, a result which both Turkey and Iran strongly oppose. Fearing Kurdish separatism within their own borders, Iran and Turkey have threatened to join Baghdad in imposing economic sanctions on Iraqi Kurdistan. Both countries launched joint military exercises with Iraqi troops at their borders with Iraqi Kurdistan. During the visit, they also discussed expansion of economic trade ties, as well as regional issues including Syria and Iraq. Erdogan met Iran’s top authorities, supreme leader Khamenei and President Hassan Rouhani during his one day trip.]
