Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif will come to Ankara for an official visit, reports said on Thursday.

Zarif will meet with Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım and will then visit President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, Turkey's foreign Ministry said.

The meeting will focus on discussing relations between Iran and Turkey, as well as regional developments.

Turkey and Iran have close economic ties.

In early April, Turkey's former Development Minister Cevdet Yılmaz said that a third of trade between the two countries is now conducted in the Turkish lira or the Iranian rial, allowing both nations to avoid exchange rate losses while reducing trade costs.
