Turkish, Iranian, Russian presidents to meet in Istanbul

Syria says rare US strike an effort 'to support terrorism'

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said they discussed a possible meeting between Putin, Erdogan, and Iranian President Hassan Rohani, but that no date was agreed.

"Fortunately, trilateral ties among Iran, Turkey and Russian Federation over regional issues have been highly significant and instrumental", Rouhani said, calling for further cooperation and consultations to solve the Syrian crisis.

The settlement of the Syrian crisis is also expected to be discussed during the Istanbul meeting.

"Respect for other countries' independence and geographical borders will lead to promotion of security in the region".

"We oppose the presence in Syria by the Americans who have incorrect goals in the region and are thinking of disintegrating Syria", Rouhani told Iranian and foreign reporters in a press conference in Tehran.

Although peace has returned to the valley after a military operation in 2009, security had been a primary concern in the region. This is the second attack in a month and it is suspected that TTP will carry out more of such attacks.

Turkey carried out air strikes on the city of Afrin in northern Syria on Thursday night, China's Xinhua News Agency reported quoting the pan-Arab al-Mayadeen TV.

Rouhani expressed Iran's readiness to help Turkey with its concerns in Syria and to further cooperate with Ankara in resolving the regional problems.

Cavusoglu also stressed the importance of strengthening the regional and worldwide relations between Iran and Turkey, adding that the Islamic Cooperation Organization meeting in Istanbul with good support from Iran led to the failure of the conspiracy against the region.

"We believe that we should stand up to plots that aim to undermine territorial integrity of regional countries", Cavusoglu said.

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