Iranian Defense Minister praises 'excellent' Turkish ties

Iranian Minister of Defense and Armed Forces Logistics, Ahmad Vahidi, said Tuesday Turkey and Iran shared excellent relations.

Speaking to reporters at an international conference in Iranian capital of Tehran, Vahidi said that Turkey's decision not to include Israel in a military exercise was a "noteworthy and positive development".

Conditions that will lead to strengthening of relations between Turkey and Iran are in the making, Vahidi stressed.

In regard to comments that the United States has a missile shield project in Turkey, Vahidi said that such a project was full of doubts and that American politicians did not present an open attitude on the matter.

We do not think that our Turkish friends would be involved in a project against Iran, Vahidi noted.
