Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu spoke Thursday over the phone with his counterparts from both Iran and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Cavusoglu and Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian discussed regional issues, especially developments related to Afghanistan and Syria, as well as bilateral relations, said a Foreign Ministry statement.

During the conversation, the issue of negotiations over the future of Iran’s nuclear program were also discussed.

Since Joe Biden became US president this January, Western diplomats have been working to restore or revamp the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, which was weakened when then-President Donald Trump unilaterally withdrew from the deal in May 2018.

Also, during the talk between Cavusoglu and his Emirati counterpart Abdullah bin Zayed Al-Nahyan, bilateral relations were discussed, the ministry added.
