Rouhani eyes closer Iran-Turkey trade ties

Neighbours set aside their political differences over Syrian war to focus on business and trade at historic meeting.

    Iran's President Hassan Rouhani has visited Turkey to sign several cooperation agreements.

    Rouhani met Turkish President Abdullah Gul, and the pair discussed political, economic and cultural relations.

    The two countries have had strained relations over the conflict in neighbouring Syria, and say they are not any closer in bridging their differences.
