Tass News has reported that Turkish President Erdogan said in a telephone conversation with his Iranian counterpart Rouhani that Turkey is wanting to restore peace and stability in the immediate region in conjunction with Russia and Iran.
“Today, we are determined more than ever before to contribute to the solution of regional problems hand in hand with Iran and Russia and in cooperation with them,” the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) quoted Erdogan as saying. “At present, the situation is getting back to normal but it is too early to say that everything is over,” Erdogan continued.
In return, the Iranian president praised the pro-Erdogan supporters who aggressively countered the military coup.
“Stability and tranquility in Turkey have a positive impact on the atmosphere in the whole region. We have no doubt that tranquility in the Islamic world countries does not suit terrorists and some superpowers,” the Iranian president stated.
