Iran Says Ankara and Tehran Support Syrian Cease-fire

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran's President Hassan Rouhani says that both Iran and Turkey support the current Syrian cease-fire and the preservation of Syria's territorial integrity.

A Sunday report by the government-owned IRAN daily quotes Rouhani as saying, "There is no difference" between the two countries regarding stopping the war and "providing relief assistance to displaced people."

His remarks came during a meeting with visiting Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu ahead of talks between the Syrian government and opposition later this month.

Turkey is a leading backer of the rebels fighting to topple Syrian President Bashar Assad. Iran, along with Russia, has strongly backed Assad.
