A gov’t with CHP would help peace prevail in Middle East: Iranian envoy
ANKARAA coalition government that would include the Republican People’s Party (CHP) would surely help peace and stability prevail in the Middle East, Iranian envoy has said.
“Any government option that includes the CHP would be very important for the peace and stability of the Middle East. It would also contribute the settlement of the Syrian issue,” Iranian Ambassador to Turkey, Ali Rıza Bikdeli, told CHP chairman Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu at a fast-breaking dinner on July 16. Bikdeli hosted Kılıçdaroğlu and his top aides at his residence.
According to sources, Kılıçdaroğlu informed the envoy about his meeting with Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu as part of coalition talks. He also congratulated Iran for the historic nuclear deal with the world powers. CHP leader stressed the importance of Iran’s inclusion to international efforts for the resolution of the Syrian problem.
For his part, Bikdeli underlined the need of boosting economic and trade ties between the two countries especially after sanctions will be removed and renewed his calls for Turkish entrepreneurs and investors to explore growing Iranian market.
