ISTANBUL: Turkey and Iran must develop a “common perspective” in order to end sectarian strife in the region, Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said during a visit to Tehran on Saturday.

The neighbours are at odds over the war in Syria: Iran is a key supporter of President Bashar al-Assad and Turkey is his most outspoken critic.

The easing of Western sanctions on Iran over its nuclear programme means the two neighbours can easily exceed their previous trade target of $30 billion annually, Davutoglu also said in comments broadcast live by Turkey’s NTV news channel.
