The Turkish interior minister is in Iran for a one-day visit at the formal invitation of his Iranian counterpart Abdolreza Rahmani Fazli.

In their meeting, Soylu and Rahmani Fazli are going to discuss the expansion of Tehran-Ankara relations as well as the latest regional and international developments.

Turkey’s Interior Ministry has announced that the two ministers will also talk about cooperation on border security as well as the fight against terrorism and smuggling.
