'Strong Tehran means strong Ankara': Turkey vows to maintain trade with Iran

Turkey to continue trade with Iran despite US sanctions

Turkish presidential elections are set to take place on June 24, with incumbent Erdogan the favourite to win.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan was speaking with his Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani over the phone, said the sources on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on talking to the media.

In efforts to preserve close ties, Britain has been largely silent on the erosion of rights and rule of law in Turkey under President Erdogan.

The Turkish leader is scheduled to meet Queen Elizabeth and British Prime Minister Theresa May.

Erdogan said bilateral cooperation between the two countries has grown, especially since recent referendums changed Turkey's governing system to an executive presidency and Britain opted out of the European Union.

'Ride Of Silence' Brings Cyclist Awareness To Mansfield
The ride, with police escort, starts at 6:30 p.m.at a memorial bench placed at Waterfront Park in Nickell's honor. She was one of dozens of cyclists who participated in the annual Ride of Silence on May 16th.

"Iran and Turkey will always stand by each other like two intimate brothers against illegal acts in the global community, and have each other's backs in different situations", said Rouhani, adding that the USA government should not be allowed to force other countries to follow its own domestic laws. He cited British-Turkish cooperation in defence industries as an example for more new ventures.

Ankara and Tehran will continue their economic relations despite the United States leaving the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran, according to Turkish Economy Minister Nihat Zeybekci.

"We would like to make this process [Brexit] an opportunity to increase our already-positive economic relations", Erdogan said.

TRT World's Simon McGregor Wood explains what both sides are hoping to get out of the visit.
