TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian and Turkish Foreign Ministers on Sunday underlined the necessity for more frequent consultations over solutions to regional problems.

In their second rounds of talks here in Tehran today, Manouchehr Mottaki and Ahmet Davutoglu discussed the trend of consultations for the settlement of Syria-Iraq crisis and exchanged views over the latest developments in Afghanistan and Palestine, wide-range cooperation in the campaign against terrorism and normalization of Turkey-Armenia relations.
