TEHRAN, Aug. 05 (MNA) – Imposing sanctions against Iran will harm the entire region, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said in his keynote speech at the 11th Ambassadors' Conference in Ankara on Monday.

The Turkish FM underlined that cooperation among Turkey, Iran and Russia in Astana and Sochi efforts will go on to ensure stability in the region.

He noted that without ensuring security in Iraq and Syria there would be no way to reach regional security.

The 13th round of Syria peace talks in Kazakhstan capital Nur-Sultan, formerly Astana, concluded on August 2, 2019 with a decision to step up joint efforts to prevent civilian casualties in Idlib.

On the second day of the meeting, the parties held bilateral and trilateral meetings to agree on the final declaration.
