Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan and Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani agreed to boost trade and signed a slew of deals at a meeting on Tuesday, but steered clear of directly addressing differences over conflict-ridden Yemen.
Erdogan paid a one-day visit to Iran at a time when relations between Ankara and Tehran — already strained by disagreements over Syria — have been battered by events in Yemen, where they have backed opposing combatants.
Erdogan has accused Iran of trying to dominate the region. Some Iranian lawmakers had called for Tehran to cancel his visit, with one politician saying the Turkish president wanted to rebuild the Ottoman Empire.
