Erdogan is also scheduled to meet Iranian supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei during his visit to the country.
"The independence referendum in Iraq's Kurdistan is a sectarian plot by foreign countries and is rejected by Tehran and Ankara", Iran's President Hassan Rouhani said, according to state TV.
"Iran, Turkey and Iraq are obliged to take serious and necessary measures", he said in reference to retaliatory measures adopted since Iraqi Kurdistan's disputed September 25 independence referendum.
"Holding the referendum in Iraq's Kurdistan will help the Western-Zionist-Arab front supporting Takfiri terrorism achieve its objectives and is definitely in contradiction to the interests of the Iraqi people, particularly the Kurds", Shamkhani said.
Ghasemi also says that the objective of Erdogan's trip is not only discussions on bilateral relations, but also about regional issues, including the Kurdish referendum. They have agreed to increase economic cooperation as well as joining forces to address major issues in the Islamic world.
The two governments fear the secession of Iraq's Kurds would stoke separatist sentiment among their own large Kurdish minorities and are eager to work together with the federal government in Baghdad to block it. Ministers of the two neighbors will also hold the fourth Turkey-Iran High Level Strategic Council meeting to enhance bilateral ties.
