Blinken: JCPOA must meet our bottom line * Eisenkot: mistake to exit agreement in 2018
The European Union and Iran agreed on Saturday to resume negotiations in Vienna in the coming days over Tehran's tattered nuclear deal with world powers.
The agreement could help relieve tensions after the talks stalled for months, while Iran enriches uranium closer than ever to weapons-grade levels under decreasing international oversight.
Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu spoke on Oct. 21 over the phone with his counterparts from both Iran and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Çavuşoğlu and Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian discussed regional issues, especially developments related to Afghanistan and Syria, as well as bilateral relations, said a Foreign Ministry statement.
"Iran, as the country with the longest coastline in the Persian Gulf and the Sea of Oman, has always supported free navigation in this region, contributing to the free passage of ships, which is very important to us. At the same time, we condemn all terrorist acts and attacks on merchant ships," the statement said.
