In five areas, we have agreed to pursue work that includes preferential tariffs, energy cooperation, bank cooperation and the use of common currency, the establishment of a mechanism similar to Intex in bilateral relations and such cooperation. I and the Foreign Minister of Turkey are expected to pursue them in a special way, which, of course, will be followed by joint commissioners.

Our country’s foreign minister also said in response to the veto of the Congressional plan to end the support of the country from the White House’s allied coalition with Yemen: “Unfortunately, Netanyahu’s influence and those who have resorted to Netanyahu have been overreached to attend the American political community. Not only is America’s interest and the money of its people, but even the congressional decision for a dependent foreign power, is actually questioned so much.

As the foreign minister stressed, the expansion of good-neighborly relations with neighboring countries like Turkey and Syria is on the agenda of the Government of the Islamic Republic of Iran. And especially with regard to the outrageous US sanctions and its pressure on other governments, the importance of our relations with our neighbors and friends is more than ever before.
Syrian authorities have repeatedly emphasized and acknowledged that victory over takfiri terrorism was due to the undisputed support of the Islamic Republic of Iran and without such support, there was no possibility of a victory over terrorism, Syrian authorities have also stated that Iran will play a major role in rebuilding Syria and for Damascus, The participation of Iranian companies in the reconstruction of Syria will be a priority.
Dr. Zarif’s visit to Damascus and Ankara and his intensive talks with senior Turkish and Syrian leaders and officials can be described as successful, since both Turkish and Syrian authorities have described this trip in the current circumstances of the region, important and timely. The warm welcoming of the Syrian and Turkish authorities of our foreign minister is a clear message to the United States about their resolve to expand relations with Iran despite unilateral and hostile sanctions and an affirmation of the importance of the trip to Damascus and Ankara.
Turkish Foreign Minister Chuvash Oghlu, in a meeting with Zarif, explicitly emphasized his opposition to US cruel US sanctions against Iran, the head of the Turkish diplomacy said that we will continue our efforts to reach the $ 30 billion trading volume. In this context, we will examine the creation of new mechanisms along existing mechanisms. The serious desire of the Turkish authorities to expand ties with Iran, the success of Iran’s diplomacy, and the disregard for American policies to force Turkey to pursue cruel sanctions against Iran and the failure of these policies.
Zarif’s meeting with top officials in Syria and Turkey reflects the close views of the two countries on important regional and international issues. In this regard, Syrian Foreign Minister Faisal al-Maqdad, in an interview with the Tsensim deputy correspondent, visited Iran’s Foreign Minister’s visit and visits Significant with the president and other Syrian officials, he said that the two countries’ views were in line with the challenges and threats that the US government had made with its intransigent decisions to boycott the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps and put its name on the terrorist list as well as support for Israel to annex the occupied Golan Ghods Occupation threatens the region and its countries.
Dr. Zarif’s visit to Syria was a point that Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Al-Mu’alem mentioned in an interview with the Tunisian expedition and said we were very happy with the visit of our dear brother Dr. Zarif to Damascus, which was actually done at the right time. And it was timely that issues and issues were deepened and expanded. Al-Muallem is constructive and fruitful for Zarif’s meeting with Bashar al-Assad and described the victory of Syria on terrorism as the backbone of Iran and saying that Syria’s victory over terrorism was, in fact, the common victory of our people and the nation of Iran’s brother, and we have always looked at more victories.
Another remarkable point about Dr. Zarif’s regional journey, especially to Syria, was that the parties and anti-revolutionary forces tried to provoke a hypocritical incident in the course of the recent Syrian President Bashar Assad’s recent visit to Tehran and the subtle resignation, which they believed were Resignation means a subtle controversy with Iran’s policies in Syria and the existence of a rift between the senior officials of the system, which denied Zarif’s recent visit to Damascus and intensive meetings and consultations with Syrian authorities and their warm and fraternal welcome from him. And indicated that the foreign minister of the Islamic Republic of Iran is determined to
The other thing about the Zarif journey is the intensification of diplomatic efforts and solutions to resolve the political crisis in Syria, in particular the role of Iran, Turkey and Russia through the so-called Astana process, with subtle deliberations and meetings in Damascus and Ankara on this issue of coordination and cooperation Closer to complete the achievements made at previous meetings, he insists that Iran is determined to direct the diplomatic efforts and movements as soon as possible to the Syrian ship, which is still facing difficulties and crises, especially because of the continued presence of terrorist groups in parts of the country, including Idlib crashes, to the safe and secure beach And after the years of war and destruction caused by the presence of terrorist groups, the Syrians will be able to see stability, security and prosperity as soon as possible.
The appreciation of the Syrian authorities and their special thanks to the Islamic Republic of Iran for the continued support of the Syrian government and people over the past eight years, when it was involved in a devastating war and a burning down of hostile states and multinational terrorists, It was a journey that Zarif walked in the streets of Damascus while calm down and, with the Syrians, spent the Syrian capital’s old bazaar in the first years of the crisis, who, in the first years of the crisis, saw the work of Syria as the main ally of Iran, and to overthrow the government of Bashar al-Assad Assad was counting, but today Damascus and to Specifically, the airport’s route to the capital and the area of Sayyeda Zaynab is absolutely safe, while once the Takfiri terrorist groups drove along these routes, and no one could move safely and securely on these routes, today it is so It has a peaceful and stable place where people can easily walk around the streets and roads
The Zarif travel to Syria and Turkey and its extensive and important consultations with senior officials from these countries promise that we will see the development and deepening of relations between Iran and our friends and allies.

Emphasis on the success of the trip to Syria and Turkey
Mohammad Jawad Zarif, the Foreign Minister of Iran, on Wednesday afternoon on a trip to Syria and Turkey, published a message on Twitter, which evaluated this regional trip positively.
In a Twitter message, Mohammad Jawad Zarif stated: “We completed a successful regional journey. During this visit, we held important talks on bilateral relations [with Syria and Turkey] with President Bashar al-Assad, Prime Minister and Syrian Foreign Minister, as well as with President Erdogan, Speaker of Parliament and Turkish Foreign Minister and other senior officials from both countries. For Iran, the region is always a priority. ”
He also criticized American warfare. “Even the US Congress wants to put an end to the stabilization efforts in Yemen,” Zarif said in a Twitter message. But those who Netanyahu prefers to do with anything, they continue to insist on endless wars with oil dollars and with the support of their roadblocks at the White House at the expense of the Americans and contrary to the interests of the United States. ”
Zarif’s Important Letter to Foreign Ministers: A recent US action is a threat to international order
At the same time as our diplomatic movements and talks in Turkey, the foreign minister wrote important names to his counterparts in the world.
Referring to the dangerous legal and political consequences of the recent terrorist regime in the United States, Mohammad Javad Zarif, in a detailed letter addressed to the foreign ministers of the world, referred to the official military force of an independent state which is a member of the United Nations and a member of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights Humanitarian law (the right to armed conflict) states: Of course, there are differences of opinion and views among different governments over many international issues, but in the post-World War II world, we all accept that any disagreement that persists It can put international peace and security at risk Peaceful and within the framework of international law and the UN Charter to settle. Although former US governments have often ignored and violated these basic rules of the structure, the current government is in the process of moving on and creating dangerous practices that end up destroying and destroying the entire structure.
Zarif called the recent US action one of the most serious threats against the international order, adding that the effects of this dangerous action are not merely limited to the erosion and destruction of the integrity of world order in the long run, but that the act of provoking and supporting some ideological elements in the government The current US and a few regimes in our region – part of a more general and urgent effort aimed at increasing tensions between Iran and the United States and eliminating all mechanisms for reducing tension and destroying political and political options. Peacebuilding tools are being used to resolve the disputes, and ultimately the option and option of resorting to direct exposure I did not stay.
In another part of the letter, he emphasized that the announcement, along with fake allegations of “communication” between Iran and al-Qaeda, is part of a plan designed to prepare public opinion of the American people for a new adventure in the West Asian region Provides a forum for the US executive to claim the legal authority to use military force against another country.
The Foreign Minister stated in this letter that all governments should work to prevent the implementation of such a unilateral and evil plan.
Referring to a history of terrorist acts committed by US forces in the West Asian region, he also reminded his counterparts that the Islamic Republic of Iran has been reciprocally referred to as the Central Command of the American Armed Forces in the West Asian region Has identified Centcom as a terrorist organization. However, he has stated that, despite numerous examples of the terrorist nature of the actions of these forces, our country’s attempt to identify this part of the official American forces is merely interacting, and our legal position regarding the international legal principle of “equality of sovereignty Governments “as well as the definition of terrorism has not changed.
In the later sections of this letter, Zarif also compares with the use of comparisons of the criminal acts of the US forces in the region and their obvious and covert protections from the terrorist and extremist organizations – even at the time of the campaign he acknowledged by his current president – The continuous and sacrifices of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) in the fight against extremist and extremist groups from the outlying cities of California and the European cities to Kabul and Baghdad have consistently led to the killing of human beings and the plunder of human rights. The Islamic Republic of Iran, in the light of this Facts that strongly violate the law
