Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan met with the Iranian president’s chief of staff, Mahmoud Vaezi, in Ankara to discuss the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and US sanctions against Tehran, Tasnim News Agency reported on Friday.

According to the Tasnim News Agency, the meeting took place late on Thursday as part of Vaezi’s one-day visit. The two sides have discussed the escalated tensions between Iran and the United States following Washington’s decision to withdraw from the JCPOA, also known as the Iran nuclear deal, and reimposition of sanctions that had been previously lifted under the agreement.

Vaezi told the Turkish leader that Tehran was determined to resist Washington’s pressure until the United States regrets its decision. He also handed over a written message from the Iranian president to Erdogan.

The Turkish leader, in turn, stated Ankara’s readiness to enhance bilateral cooperation with Tehran.

The outlet added that during his stay, the chief of staff also had meetings with Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu and a number of other senior officials.
On Wednesday, Turkish Energy and Natural Resources Minister Fatih Donmez said that Ankara would continue buying Iranian gas under the exiting contract, which provides for the annual supply of 9.5 billion cubic meters of gas, despite the US sanctions.
On Tuesday, the first package of US sanctions against Iran was reinstated. The sanctions target Iran’s acquisition of dollar bank notes, trade in gold and other metals, transactions related to the Iranian rial, as well as the other countries’ transactions and trade activities with Iran.
The second wave of sanctions is set to take effect on November 4, targeting Iran’s oil exports and energy sector, among others.

Erdogan as an old Turkish aga is switching sides as long as his fez stays on his head…

Hehe… The problem, when you play all sides, is that you end with all sides against you! Russia seriously thrived at preventing the Qatar-Turkey pipeline to be built through Syria or Iraq since it’d mean hardship for Russian natural gas sales to the EU… Now there is a Qatar-Iran-Turkey pipeline on the table and Iran having even more gas than Qatar, even if Putin will look like maintaining good relations with Turkey or Iran on the surface, this is NOT acceptable for Russia. No surprise that, if Israel/Cyprus gas basin may compete, the undersea pipeline needed to bypass Turkey will… Read more »

Russia, Turkey and Iran have much the same problem. US sanctions.

Only that Russia and Iran has the problem without provocation – while Erdogan deserves them

Well, Russia is not so screwed by US sanctions since trades between both have already been low while the EU ones are a real joke : Putin was even able to have the new generation of Siemens turbines for nuke-reactors going through the customs, thus allowing to feed Crimea, Luhansk and Donetsk with electricity without building new nuke-plants. Old gen turbines converted 30-35% of Wt into We. this generation converts 50-60%…
In fact, EU says we sanction Russia to please the Yanks but this is BS, customs simply close their eyes 😉

Why should Iran help Turki? Turki supported FSA Jihadis who have killed 1000s of Syrian Soldiers, Hezbollah & IRGC too in Syria.

Confirmation : Iraq government has begun blocking Iranian goods entering Iraq starting from today (complying with US sanctions on the Iranian regime). I remember some Iranian official speaking about the Houthi coup in Yemen, having said that Tehran was now giving orders to 4 capital cities : Beirut, Baghdad, Damascus and now Sa’ana… So it sounds like a declaration of independence from Baghdad… And the AMN article : “Iraq will not adhere to US imposed sanctions against Iran: Abadi” here : http://almasdar.wpengine.com/article/iraq-will-not-adhere-to-us-imposed-sanctions-against-iran-abadi/ is actually fake news. #BREAKING: Today, tens of thousands of football fans chanted slogans against #Iran’s Islamic Regime… Read more »
