Zarif carried no message from Assad to Erdoğan: spokesman

Tehran, April 17, IRNA – Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi on Wednesday refuted allegations made by some media on the objective of the meeting of Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.

Iran's foreign minister bears no message from Syrian president to his Turkish counterpart, Mousavi said.

Speaking to IRNA, Mousavi said it was quite natural for the Iranian foreign minister to brief Turkish president on the content of his meeting with Syrian president.

Foreign minister visited Syria yesterday and held separate meetings with Syrian officials and the country's president.
