دعا الرئيس التركي رجب طيب أردوغان ضيفه الرئيس الإيراني حسن روحاني للعمل معا للمساعدة في مكافحة الإرهاب والطائفية في المنطقة، وإلى رفع العلاقات بين بلديهما، وتعزيز التعاون الاقتصادي.ـ

The president of Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, has called on his guest, the Iranian president Hassan Rouhani, to cooperate in the support of fighting terrorism and separatism in the region and in enhancing relations between their countries, while intensifying economic cooperation.

وقال أردوغان لروحاني -الذي يقوم اليوم بزيارة رسمية إلى أنقرة، بعد أن شارك في أعمال القمة الإسلامية الـ13 التي عقدت في إسطنبول في اليومين الماضيين- إن على تركيا وجارتها إيران العمل معا للمساعدة في مكافحة الإرهاب والطائفية اللذين تعاني منهما المنطقة.ـ

And Erdogan said to Rouhani - who presented himself today on an official visit to Ankara after participation in the proceedings of the 13th Islamic Summit [Conference] uniting in Istanbul during the last two days - that Turkey [in agreement with] Iran is cooperating in support of the fight against terrorism and separatism from which the region is suffering.

Even though attending the Istanbul conference along with over 30 other heads of state and government from Islamic-majority countries, Iran's president Rouhani did not attend the closing meeting in protest at the criticisms he had to face from other conference members. Today in Ankara, however, he signed eight cooperation documents together with Turkey's president Erdogan. A tiny beginning of what might become a closer cooperation between both countries.

Ankara, April 16, IRNA – In a ceremony in the presence of President Hassan Rouhani and President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey eight cooperation documents were signed here on Saturday.

The documents included an agreement between Iran and Turkey in connection with social security, a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on preventing illegal entrance and exit of cultural works, a MoU on cooperation in protection of plants and botanical quarantine, a MoU between Iran's Ministry of Science, Research and Turkish Higher Education Council and a MoU on cooperation between National Center for Measurement of Iran and Iran's Standard Institute and Industrial Researches and Turkey's Standard Institute.

On the same day, April 16, European Union EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini arrived in Tehran for talks with high-ranking Iranian leaders about economic and cultural relations between the EU and Iran. In the aftermath of a nuclear deal reached by the 5+1 group in 2015, European investors are much interested in stable conditions of Iran's nuclear policy that would allow an intense financial engagement in Iran.

Tehran, April 16, IRNA – The visit of European Union (EU) foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini, who arrived here on Saturday morning, is aimed at holding talks with top Iranian officials on revival of bilateral ties.

During her Tehran visit, Mogherini is heading a high-ranking diplomatic-economic delegation consisting of seven EU commissioners in the fields of energy, scientific research, the environment, sports and industry. The EU delegation is to hold serious talks with the Iranian officials to promote bilateral cooperation in those fields.

As this is the second visit to Tehran by Mogherini, it indicates the importance given to Iran by Europe and will provide the necessary ground for increasing bilateral cooperation, especially in the economic and scientific fields, between EU and Iran.

According to analysts, the Tehran trip happens in the event of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) programs to develop diplomatic, scientific and economic cooperation with Iran. The diplomats see JCPOA as success of diplomacy in solving an important international question.

Iran and the P5+1 - the US, Russia, China, France, Britain, and Germany - finalized the JCPOA on July 14, 2015, ending more than a decade of dispute over Tehran’s peaceful nuclear program.

Most analysts believe that the post-JCOPA era is a proper chance for Iran to obtain necessary modern technologies from other countries and introduce high potentials of its young generation as well to other nations in order to share their experiences in various scientific fields.

News Update for April 17, 2016:

سوريا.. مقتل ضباط إيرانيين وإصابة جنرال رفيع في حلب

Syria ... Iranian officers died and General [Rafia] was wounded in Aleppo.

Editor's Note: The latest casualties are adding to earlier reported Iranian losses in northern Syria, including that of General Hamdani who died in 2015. Iranian special forces are fighting in favour of the Assad regime and are getting increasingly nervous by a recently established Saudi-Arabian engagement. Last February, Saudi-Arabia has already been warned by Iran's deputy chief of staff Brigadier General Masoud Jazayeri after Saudi deployment of combat planes in Turkey intended to fight the Islamic State in Syria.
