Mahmoud Vaezi, the Chief of Staff of Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, left Tehran for Ankara on Thursday. He is tasked with delivering President Rouhani’s message to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
During his one-day visit to Turkish capital city, he is also slated to meet with Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu. He is supposed to convey the views of the Iranian officials to Turkish counterparts and relay those of the Turkish back to Tehran.
This will be the second meeting of Vaezi with Erdogan as he had earlier met with the Turkish chief of government in mid-May.
Turkey, India, and China are the most significant countries which have declined US request for cutting Iran’s oil export to zero. The three countries have described the US unilateral move as an illegal measure in the international affairs and have asserted that Iran’s oil is essential for the global market of energy.
