Turkey’s Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu heading a high-ranking delegation arrived in Tehran few minutes ago to mark the first official visit by a Turkish premier in the wake of the nuclear Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

He is accompanied by ministers of economy, customs and trade, energy, transport, communications and development, government officials and representatives of major Turkish media, IRNA news agency reported.

The visit follows consultations between the two countries’ foreign ministries with the objective of expansion and strengthening of political, cultural, and economic relations.

It is expected that Davutoglu will negotiate with First Vice President Eshaq Jahangiri, meet Foreign Minister Mohmmad Javad Zarif and also pay a courtesy call on President Hassan Rouhani, IRNA added.

Considering the combination of the Turkish prime minister’s entourage, economic and trade issues will top the agenda of his meetings in Tehran including achieving the 30-billion-dollar outlook in Iran-Turkey commercial ties.

Turkey intends to give a new impetus to its trade ties with neighboring Iran following removal of sanctions thorough a more active role by its private sector in order to take the rising golden opportunity in Iran’s economy.

Following Davutoglu’s visit to Iran, the upcoming visits by Foreign Minister Zarif and President Rouhani to Turkey are on the schedule.

The 25th round of Iran-Turkey Joint Economic Cooperation Council is scheduled to convene in Turkey later this year.

Nothing surprises me anymore. I just hope the mullahs are not dumb enough to sign any contracts with this reckless time-bomb of a leadership that will implode sooner rather than later. Then again, the recent financing of hamas proves how stupid the IRI leadership is in rewarding its enemies.
