Prime Minister Erdogan set to visit Iran, Iraq

Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan said he will visit neighboring Iran and Iraq as the Turkish government tries to cast itself as a regional troubleshooter. Erdogan said the visit to Iran would be in October or November after meeting with the Islamic country’s hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad during the United Nations General Assembly meetings held in New York. He added that Turkey had already laid down its opinion regarding the prevention of dissemination of nuclear weapons, adding that it would continue to express this sensitivity in bilateral talks.

PM Erdogan’s announcement came as Iran admitted on September 25 to the International Atomic Energy Agency to building a second uranium enrichment plant. Iran’s admission and further details provided by the U.S., France and the U.K., comes just days before the scheduled October 1 meeting between Iran and Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia and the United States.
