Pointing out that the foreign policy of the Islamic Republic of Iran in the forthcoming term is to develop relations to their highest level in various fields with the friendly and brotherly country of Turkey, the President added, "Tehran and Ankara have good potentials to develop relations in all fields, and the promotion of cooperation between the two countries can further promote regional and international cooperation”.

Referring to the priority of good neighbourliness policy in the foreign policy of the new government, the President said, "The success of good neighbourliness policy requires the development and deepening of multilateral ties between Iran and Turkey".

In this meeting, the Speaker of the Grand National Assembly of Turkey Mustafa Şentop congratulated Dr Raisi on his election and wished him success on behalf of President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan as the new President of Iran and said, "The relations between Iran and Turkey are beyond good relations between two neighbours and are very important for the realisation of peace in the international stage”.

He also expressed hope that with the forthcoming meeting of the Supreme Council of Cooperation between Iran and Turkey, a big step would be taken towards the promotion of cooperation between the two countries.

The Speaker of the Grand National Assembly of Turkey expressed concern over the developments in Afghanistan, noting that the lack of proper progress in the peace process in Afghanistan has created a security vacuum in the country and therefore Iran and Turkey should strengthen their cooperation to establish peace and stability in Afghanistan.
