<p style="text-align: left;">Iran has good relations with Turkey, Iranian Defense Minister Amir Khatami said on Aug. 19.

Khatami told Iran state TV that Tehran&rsquo;s relations with Turkey, Afghanistan, Azerbaijan and Pakistan are based on &ldquo;brotherhood and honesty.&rdquo;

According to Hurriyet daily he said he has visited several countries recently, describing the results of his visits as &ldquo;positive&rdquo;.

On August 7, the U.S. re-imposed a first round of economic sanctions on Iran, which mainly target the country&rsquo;s banking sector.

Earlier this month, Turkey&rsquo;s Energy and Natural Resources Minister Fatih Donmez said trade between Turkey and Iran will continue as part of a long-term bilateral contract, which is set to run until 2026.
