Iran: President Rouhani welcomes Turkish counterpart Erdogan in Tehran

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan arrived in Tehran ahead of a press conference with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Wednesday. The recent Kurdish independence referendum is expected to top the agenda, as Ankara seeks to prevent Kurdish territorial self-determination in Iraq. Tehran is also said to be opposed to the idea of Kurdish seccession from Iraq, in fear that independence... Еще aspirations in northern Iraq would spill over and encourage their own Kurdish populations to pull away. The meeting has been expected since August but with an original focus on cooperation in the fight against the self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS; formerly ISIS/ ISIL).
