Turkish, Iranian, Russian presidents to meet in Istanbul

Erdogan, Rouhani hail increased cooperation on security - UPDATED

"The Americans want to disintegrate the Syrian territories and have done the preliminary moves to create and recognize an independent country in Eastern Euphrates in the Kurdish-populated region but certainly this will not be materialized", he added.

"We should make efforts and take measures in a way that no country feels threatened by its neighbours, " Rouhani said in the meeting with visiting Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu on Wednesday.

Presidents of Turkey, Iran and Russia, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Hassan Rouhani and Vladimir Putin will hold a meeting in Istanbul, Turkish media reported February 8.

Tension has been escalating between the two North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies amid Turkey's ongoing military operation into the Syria's Afrin against the People's Protection Units (YPG), which Ankara considers as the Syrian affiliates of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), listed by Turkey, the European Union and the United States as a terrorist organization.

"The Turkish military operations in Syria were discussed during Cavusoglu's visit", the sources added.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has warned of regional threats to the interests of both Tehran and Ankara, calling for boosting bilateral ties in all sectors.

Bilgic said Turkey has informed worldwide organizations, including North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and the United Nations, as well as its neighbors about the operation.

"We maintain that regional states should stand up against plots hatched up with the aim of violating their territorial integrity", he was quoted as saying in a Farsi report by the Iranian president's official website. He again called the Turkish offensive in Afrin and intended operation in Manbij as a distraction from the fight against Daesh.

France's foreign minister has made the worst possible statement on the Turkish-led Operation Olive Branch in Syria, said Turkey's European Union affairs minister on Wednesday.
