Turkish FM to visit Iran
By Ferenc Isza | AFP – Sun, Jul 10, 2011
Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu will visit Iran on Sunday to discuss a wave of unrest shaking Middle East countries, a senior Turkish diplomat said.
Davutoglu was to travel to Tehran after completing talks in Saudi Arabia, where he flew Saturday evening, the diplomat, who accompanied the minister on the trip, told AFP by telephone.
He was to meet with Iranian counterpart Ali Akbar Salehi late Sunday and other Iranian officials Monday "to discuss the latest developments in the region," the official said.
Davutoglu's visits come as another stage in a regional tour, announced last month, that has already taken him to Egypt and Libya.
He is expected to visit Syria as well, but no date has been announced so far for the trip.
