AFP: Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki will pay a two-day visit to Turkey next week, a Turkish foreign ministry official said Sunday. ANKARA, Feb 18, 2007 (AFP) – Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki will pay a two-day visit to Turkey next week, a Turkish foreign ministry official said Sunday.

Mottaki, who will arrive on Tuesday, will meet his Turkish counterpart Abdullah Gul, with Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and with President Ahmet Necdet Sezer.

He will also attend talks aimed at boosting bilateral economic cooperation.

After years of animosity, Turkey and Iran have markedly improved relations in recent years.

Turkey has noted Tehran’s enhanced cooperation in combatting Kurdish separatists, who are also active on Iranian soil.

The turmoil in Iraq, a neighbour to both countries, has also brought them closer. And Ankara has lobbied Tehran to resolve peacefully the row with the West over its nuclear program.
