Iran eyeing border security deal with Turkey: IRGC
Terrorist groups have created some instabilities along shared Iran-Turkey borders on west and north western Iran over the recent years,’ Head of Public Relations Department of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) General Ramezan Sharif said on Tuesday evening.
Although the armed forces and IRGC confrontations with such groups have resulted in establishing security, the investors have been concerned of the terrorists’ moves, he said, while elaborating on the reasons of Chief of Staff of the Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Hossein Baqeri’s
visit to Turkey on Tuesday.
‘IRGC, particularly its ground forces, are closely monitoring the shared borders and would confront any destabilizing moves by terrorist groups,’ the General added.
General Baqeri held talks with his Turkish counterpart General Hulusi Akar upon arriving in Ankara and discussed issues related to border security and fight against terrorism.
