Alwaght-President Hassan Rouhani of Iran has rejected  any move that will alter geographical borders of countries, adding that no state in the region should feel threatened by its neighbors.  

He made the remarks during a meeting with Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu in Tehran on Wednesday.

Rouhani also underlined the need for fighting terrorism and reinforcing regional stability and security.

“Preserving countries’ independence and maintaining geographical borders will lead to promotion of security in the region, and we should make efforts and take measures in a way that no country feels threatened by its neighbors,” he added.

“Unfortunately, today certain sides seek to alter geographical borders in the region and following their defeat in the north of Iraq, they embarked on hatching plots in northern Syria,” Rouhani noted.

The meeting took place amid Turkey’s ongoing military operation, dubbed Operation Olive Branch, in Syria’s northwestern region of Afrin. The offensive aims to eliminate the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG), which Ankara views as a terror organization and the Syrian branch of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK).

Iran has urged Turkey to stop the military offensive, saying the operation breached Syrian sovereignty and would fuel tensions in the war-damaged country.

Elsewhere in his remarks, the Iranian president underscored cooperation between Ankara, Moscow and Tehran with the aim of restoring unity to Syria, eliminating terrorism and establishing peace in the Arab country.

“Fortunately, trilateral ties among Iran, Turkey and Russia over regional issues have been highly significant and instrumental,” Rouhani said, calling for further cooperation and consultations to solve the Syrian crisis. 

Touching on the Russian-brokered initiative of Sochi peace talks held late last month, Rouhani said the congress was an important step towards settling regional problems.

For his part, the Turkish foreign minister said the US was devising new plots in the region to undermine the growing ties between Ankara and Tehran, urging active cooperation in the face of such schemes.

“We believe that we should stand up to plots that aim to undermine territorial integrity of regional countries,” Cavusoglu said.

On the Afrin offensive, the top Turkish diplomat said that the operation was temporary and only aimed at terrorists in that region.
