Turkey, Iran violating global law in Syria

Turkish President Erdogan warns US to quit Syria's Manbij

The three countries, now in the throes of the Syrian civil war as President Bashar al-Assad's backers, held a meeting late last year and a peace conference earlier this year in the Russian resort city of Sochi.

President Rouhani hailed two countries' high-level talks on the expansion of bilateral, regional and global cooperation, saying that the two governments are willing to develop and strengthen relations as two friendly and brother neighboring countries.

According to the Kremlin, the state heads noted the importance of continuing cooperation between Russia, Turkey and Iran to promote the Syrian peace process, and discussed trilateral contacts at various levels in the future.

On Monday, Iran urged Turkey to halt the Afrin operation, saying it breached Syrian sovereignty and would increase tension.

Moreover, in today's meeting, Iran's president stressed the necessity of fighting against terrorism in Syria, adding "unfortunately, today some [states] want to redraw the geographical boundaries in the region, and after the failure in northern Iraq, they have designed another plot in northern Syria".

Russian and Turkish leaders agreed to further coordinate their troops and special services in Syria to combat terrorist groups who are violating the Syrian ceasefire, the Kremlin said Thursday.

The three countries have worked together in recent months to try to reduce violence in Syria, even though they have backed rival sides in the almost seven-year civil war and remain deeply involved in the conflict.

Cavusoglu emphasized "we believe that we must stand against conspiracies that are aimed at undermining the territorial integrity of the countries of the region".

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu paid a surprise visit to the Iranian capital Tehran on Wednesday.
