Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Sunday at the Science and Technology Summit of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) that his country was ready to help the Rohingya, a Muslim minority ethnic group in Myanmar who are fleeing conflict.

Saying that the two countries allegiance to fighting terrorism is really important, Erdogan added joint actions in fighting terrorism have been very effective in stabilizing the region and Iran and Turkey must continue the path.

Two leaders, said a statement by the Presidential Press Office, agreed to hold a private meeting during the upcoming UN General Assembly in NY later this month.

The two North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies' relations have been sour over Washington's support for the Syrian Kurds, which Ankara considers as terrorists. Turkey argues that there is no difference between the PKK, which is listed as a terrorist organization by the USA, the European Union and Turkey, and the PYD/YPG.

A day earlier, Erdogan criticized USA prosecutors for bringing charges against a former Turkish minister accused of laundering money on behalf of Iran, calling it a politically motivated act against Turkey.

In his turn, Erdogan also stressed that the government in Myanmar must be pressured into halting its atrocities.

Ankara is frustrated since there has been no progress on its demand for Gulen's extradition, after the failed July 15 coup attempt.
