Turkey's Foreign Minister has held closed-door talks with his Iranian counterpart Ali Akbar Salehi in Tehran. The meeting focused on Iran's nuclear program and developments in neighbouring Iraq and Syria.

Ahmet Davutoglu's visit was described as regular talks between the two ministers, but it comes at a key time.

A Turkish official said on Tuesday that Turkey is evaluating whether to seek a waiver from the US to exempt Turkish oil importer Tupras from sanctions targeting financial institutions that deal with Iran's central bank.

Iran said on December 24th it had extended its crude export contract with Turkey for 2012. Turkey is bound by UN sanctions against Iran, and it insists it is not obliged to follow non-UN sanctions.
