"I hope that the Vienna talks on the implementation of the nuclear agreement will be concluded fairly," President Erdoğan said during the meeting. 

Erdoğan further urged the international organizations to help Iran in dealing with the influxes of Afghan refugees.

Qalibaf, for his part, underlined that the comprehensive document of cooperation between the two countries is being finalized, which is a symbol of a serious willingness of both nations to develop relations.

The Iranian parliament speaker further said that the big powers must learn that they should not try to impose their will on other countries.

He further said an agreement in the Vienna talks will be reached if the major western powers show respect for other countries' interests.
