Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan arrived in Tehran early Wednesday morning for an official two-day visit, according to the state-run Islamic Republic News Agency.
He is scheduled to meet with President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in the afternoon to discuss a host of regional issues, including Iran’s nuclear program and the international pressure that has been placed on Syrian President Bashar Assad.
Erdogan will also inaugurate a Turkish cultural center in Tehran.
Turkey has expressed its readiness to once again host talks between Western powers and Iran over the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program. Istanbul previously hosted similar talks in January 2011, and the next round is scheduled for mid-April.
The prime minister was met at the airport in Tehran by Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi, reported IRNA.
