    Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said the regional powers needed to cooperate to resolve the crises in Iraq and Syria.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — There is a need to develop relations between Tehran and Ankara to solve the problems in the Middle East, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Saturday.

    "Nowadays, when the situation in the region seems shaky, the development cooperation, like-mindedness, as well as contacts between Tehran and Ankara can be very useful for solving problems in the region," Rouhani said after a meeting with Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu in Tehran, as quoted by the IRNA news agency.

    The Iranian president said that cooperation between the regional states was necessary to resolve the crises in Syria and Iraq, and help in the fight against terrorism.

    Earlier in the day, Cavusoglu arrived in Tehran along with Head of Turkey's National Intelligence Organization Hakan Fidan to meet with the Iranian leadership.
