At the end of his one-day working visit to Turkey, Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki left Ankara for the Syrian capital of Damascus on Tuesday. Mottaki arrived in Ankara earlier Tuesday to hold talks with Turkish officials.
Upon arrival at Ankara airport, the minister was welcomed by a number of local officials and Iran’s acting ambassador in Turkey, Gholam-Reza Baqeri-Moqaddam.
During his stay in Turkey, Mottaki conferred with the country’s Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his counterpart Abdullah Gul on matters of mutual concern.
At the end of his one-hour meeting with Erdogan, Mottaki told dozens of reporters outside Turkey’s Prime Minister’s Office in Turkish language that the outcome of his talks with Turkish officials was positive.
