Iran's chief of staff, Gen. Mohammad Hossein Bagheri, arrived in Ankara yesterday for talks with Turkish leadership amid efforts to bring the two countries to a common understanding to cooperate on the Syrian and Iraqi crises.

In early August, Turkish authorities launched the construction of wall along Turkey's border with Iran in an effort to protect the country from the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), listed by Ankara as a terrorist organization.

During his three-day visit, the Iranian Chief of Staff will meet Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Defense Minister Nurettin Canikli. The delegation accompanying Baqeri includes political representatives as well as military representatives.

Report further added that, Baqeri is also expected to visit Istanbul on August 17.

On Tuesday, 1,237 were stopped at the Syrian border, 51 at the frontier with Iran and 13 were arrested coming from Iraq, the General Staff said in a statement. In light of recent developments, it was mutually agreed that the de-escalation zones outlined during the Astana talks must be actualized quickly.

Tehran-Ankara-Moscow cooperation has led to several successful indirect talks between the Syrian government and the opposition groups in the Kazakh capital of Astana.

But Turkey and Russian Federation have been cooperating more over Syria in recent months, helping to extract civilians from Aleppo and then co-sponsoring peace talks in the Kazakh capital Astana.
