Ahmadinejad due in Turkey Thursday

TEHRAN, (ISNA)-Iran’s president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will trip to Turkey on Thursday to meet the country’s high-ranking officials.

His trip seems to be so vital that some commentators believe the move will take a step forward in expanding bilateral ties.

The Zionist regime has written a letter to Turkish officials opposing against the trip.

But Ahmadinejad’s senior advisor Mojtaba Samareh Hashemi has told reporters on the sidelines of the cabinet meeting yesterday that the letter is so trivial to be examined.

Iran’s foreign minister Manouchehr Mottaki has met Turkish counterpart Ali Babacan on the sidelines on Non-Aligned Movement meeting held in Tehran and also Iran’s top nuclear negotiator Saeed Jalili has met Turkish officials en route home after talks in Geneva.

Also some analysts believe that Turkey is willing to play a new role in Iran’s nuclear case.
