Boroujerdi urges Iran-Turkey tighter anti-terrorism campaign

Speaking to the media prior to his departure to Turkey where he is due to meet with Turkish officials to discuss bilateral and regional relations, Boroujerdi reminded that campaign against terrorism requires "a serious fight, regardless of where it is staged".

"Our true potential exceeds what we currently make of it. Relations are good, but they could be better," he told the Anatolian news agency.

Boroujerdi spoke of great opportunities ahead for Iran and Turkey, suggesting that the countries had more common than diverging interests. Turkey and Iran are neighbors with a remittent relationship in the volatile Middle East, and diplomatic relations between the regional powers have cooled with regard to Turkey's cooperation on a bilateral and regional level with the US, which is "the Great Satan". 

Touching on the US role in the Middle East, the Iranian official suggested that the nations of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region could secure the region through cooperation with each other, and there would be "no need to lean on the walking cane of the US".

Commenting on the common terrorism problem of Iran and Turkey, the official noted that the two countries were cooperating through a mutual security committee for years to find a solution to the problem, and suggested that a serious fight was needed to overcome terrorism wherever it was staged.
