Iranian First Vice President Es’haq Jahangiri has expressed the Islamic Republic’s readiness to send humanitarian aid to conflict-ridden areas in Syria, urging joint Tehran-Ankara efforts to diplomatically resolve the crisis in the Arab country, PressTV reported.

Jahangiri made the remarks in a phone conversation with Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim on Friday, the report continued.

“With the help of each other, [we] have to prevent an increase in killing and bloodshed in the region, including in Syria, and make efforts to save civilians trapped and besieged in different regions across the country,” he said.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran has been ready for the dispatch of humanitarian aid to Syria since yesterday (Thursday),” he claimed.

He then emphasized his hope that Turkey and Iran could “take serious steps toward settling Syria’s issues diplomatically.”

“Regional issues can be resolved more quickly through the expansion of cooperation and growth in coordination between Iran and Turkey,” the Iranian official added.
