  • Russia confirms Turkey has made advance payment for S-400s

A Turkish court on Wednesday handed life sentences to 34 people for plotting to assassinate President Recep Tayyip Erdogan at a luxury Aegean hotel during last year's failed coup.

The Turkish leader had accused Iran at the time of seeking to "dominate the region" and demanded that it withdraw its troops from Iraq and Syria.

Following the recent controversial independence referendum of Iraqi Kurdistan region, Iran's air force reinforced its defensive role along the country's western borders by deploying new missile hardware.

"The political, economic and global relations between Iran and Turkey are in a good position, but we should strive to advance military and defense cooperation consistent with other fields", Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said Tuesday after his meeting with the Turkish top general.

At a joint news conference, Rouhani said "We will not accept changing borders in the region".

Gen. Akar is also expected to meet with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani during his visit Monday, which comes days before Turkish President President Recep Tayyip Erdogan travels to Tehrani.

Iran and Turkey strongly oppose the independence of Iraqi Kurds, fearing that this would provoke the Kurdish separatists in their own territories to seek autonomy.

"America and Israel benefit from the vote... A referendum which was conducted by sitting side by side with Mossad has no legitimacy", he said, referring to the Israeli intelligence agency.

The independence referendum was opposed by many countries because it would threaten the integrity of Iraq and it could undermine fight against Islamic State militants.

Since 1984, the Kurdish rebel group known as the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) has been involved in an armed conflict with Turkey, in an attempt to carve out an independent Kurdish state.

Mr Rouhani also said that Tehran and Ankara are planning to expand their economic ties.

General Hatami referred to longstanding friendship between Iran and Turkey and the two nations' historic, religious and cultural commonalities, saying that Turkey enjoys a special status in Iran's foreign, defense and security policies.

Speaking at a meeting with Akar in Tehran, Shamkhani said the KRG's approach to hold the independence vote was "irresponsible and amateur".
