Turkey and Iran have vowed to co-operate to defeat separatist Kurdish militants, on the third day of a Turkish offensive on its Iraq border.
The Kurdish militants posed a “common problem” for Turkey and Iran, Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi said on an unscheduled trip to Ankara.
Turkey vowed jointly to “totally eliminate” the “terrorist threat”.
Turkey’s latest offensive was triggered by rebel attacks which killed 24 Turkish soldiers on Tuesday.
