In a message cabled to his Turkish counterpart, Mevlut Cavusolgu, Zarif congratulated him on his reappointment as Turkish foreign minister and expressed hope that under his wisdom and far-sightedness a resolution will be found for the current tensions between Russia and Turkey, IRNA reported.
Zarif also called for expansion of close cooperation in the fight against terrorism and uprooting of the issue in the region and the world.
Tehran will seize the opportunity and voice readiness to help resolve regional and global issues at this sensitive juncture, Zarif said.
Downing a Russian jet fighter by Turkey on Syrian border last week has created tension in Ankara-Moscow relations.
