"Cooperation between Iran and Turkey prevents abuse of terrorists to put at risk peace and security on border areas of the two countries," Zolfaqari said during the phone talk late on Friday.
He said that Tehran and Ankara need to strengthen cooperation and ties to combat all the threats posed to security and order on the common Iranian-Turkish border.
Iran assures its friendly and brotherly country Turkey that Iran is serious in fighting terrorism, organized crimes, arms and ammunition smuggling, and human trafficking, Iran's deputy interior minister for security affairs added.
Turkish Deputy Interior Minister, for his part, thanked recent military operations of the Islamic Republic of Iran against the terrorist groups, and said, "I hope that with the continuation of such operations, the hostile governments to destabilize the region would be disappointed with their attempt to sabotage the Turkish friendly relations with Iran."
He again thanked the Islamic Republic of Iran for its determination in the fight against terrorism and those jeopardizing peace and security on Iran-Turkish borders, and promised to raise and follow up the issue of resuming flights between the two countries at a meeting of the Turkish National Health Council.
The two sides highlighted their determination to advance cooperation aimed at establishing security along the common borders.
Iran and Turkey share some 500km of borders most of which include mountainous area.
