Turkey (IP) - The President of the Islamic Republic of Iran called on the world's countries, both Muslim and non-Muslim, to establish a 'world justice order'.

Iran PressAsia: Iran's President Ebrahima Raisi and his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan signed memoranda of understanding on Wednesday to expand areas of cooperation between the two countries including trade and business, energy, transportation, culture, and security. 

Holding a joint press conference with his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan on the sidelines of the signing ceremony, Ebrahim Raisi noted that the domination system led by the West seeks to make the region insecure and fragmented, and stressed that Iran-Turkey cooperation could be effective against terrorism. 

He recalled the issue of Palestine and what is going on in Gaza, as a concern of the Muslims and the world people, where the Israeli regime's war has led to the genocide of the Palestinian people including the women and children. 

He expressed his regret for the international institutions and unions for their lack of efficacy in stopping the Israeli regime's carnage in Gaza.

He emphasized the collective efforts of Iran, Turkey, and other freedom-seeking countries to establish a just world order.

Iran's President stressed the supportive position of Tehran and Ankara to the Palestinian cause and called for the world's countries, especially the Muslim countries, to limit their economic ties with the Israeli regime as an effective way to stop the regime's practice of oppression on the Palestinian people.

Raisi appreciated his Turkish counterpart for his hospitality and said the constructive negotiations between the two sides would be in the interest of the two nations, region, and the world.  

Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi said that Türkiye’s support and stance against oppression on Palestinian issues are "praiseworthy", Anadolu News Agency reported.

“President Erdogan and I are in agreement regarding the Palestinian cause and recognition of rights of Palestinian people,” Raisi said in a joint news conference with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in Türkiye’s capital Ankara.

Raisi further said that Tehran and Ankara have had “good relations” for many years, adding that Iran wants to elevate them to even “higher levels”.

Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi has reiterated that the United Nations has lost its effectiveness regarding the Israeli regime’s genocidal war against Palestinians in Gaza.

"The United Nations has lost its effectiveness in this matter and has gone to the sidelines,” President Raisi said.

Raisi stressed that those who have committed crimes against the Palestinians must be held accountable.

Türkiye and Iran agreed on the importance of avoiding steps that would further threaten the security and stability of the region, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Wednesday. 

"We discussed the need to put an end to Israel's inhumane attacks on Gaza and take urgent steps toward establishing a just and lasting peace," Erdogan said at a joint news conference with his Iranian counterpart Ebrahim Raisi following their meeting in Ankara.

Reminding that Türkiye has sent over 30,000 tons of humanitarian aid for Palestinians to Al Arish port in northeastern Egypt, including 26,000 tons of flour, since Oct. 7, Erdogan said: "We reiterated our support for the just cause of Palestine and reaffirmed our commitment to continue collaboration on this matter."

Both presidents also exchanged views on the recent developments in Palestine, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, and South Caucasus during the meeting, he said.

"The Palestinian issue is in the focus of Türkiye and Iran," he added.
