Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu has urged Iranian president to use his influence to help bring pressure on the Assad regime to end the crisis in Syria, Turkish diplomatic sources have said.
Davutoglu met with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in New York on Wednesday at the request of the Iranian side, sources said.
The Turkish foreign minister told the Iranian leader that a recent meeting of Turkish, Iranian and Egyptian officials in Cairo was of great importance to build up pressure on the Assad regime.
Davutoglu also conveyed Turkey's unease over recent remarks by senior Iranian authorities as Ahmadinejad said the remarks did not reflect the official Iranian position and his country's sensitivities.
Sources said both sides had reaffirmed that the cooperation between Turkey and Iran was of utmost importance as Davutoglu conveyed Turkey's expectations from Iran over fight against terrorism.
Davutoglu also briefed Ahmadinejad over his recent visit to Myanmar as well as the situation in Somalia and Turkey's humanitarian assistance to the two countries.
