He added that Iran and Turkey are cooperating in war against terrorism in Syria and Iraq.

Meanwhile, Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said Ankara hopes for a summit with Iranian and Iraqi leaders to coordinate the responses to the Kurdish independence vote.

"A development of this sort will isolate the Kurdish regional government", Mr Erdogan warned. At a joint news conference with Rouhani, Turkish President repeated that the plebiscite had no legitimacy and had only been recognized by Israel.

Turkey's President Tayyip Erdogan, who is on a one-day trip to Tehran that will also include talks with Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said Ankara was considering taking further measures against Iraqi Kurdistan.

"From the point of view of Iran and Turkey, Iraq and Syria are indivisible and independent entities, and we do not accept border changes", Rouhani said.

Iran and Russian Federation support Syria's Bashar al-Assad, while Turkey has supported some of the rebel groups in the past.

Mr Rouhani also said that Tehran and Ankara are planning to expand their economic ties.

Akar arrived in Tehran on Sunday on an invitation from the Iranian chief of staff.

The military drills, contributed by some forces of the Iraqi Army, is conducted near the Parviz Khan border post in western Iran.

Erdogan, whose security forces have been embroiled in a decades-long battle with Kurdish separatists in southeast Turkey, repeated his accusation that Israel was behind the Iraqi Kurds' referendum.

In response, the Kurdish government's spokesperson, Safeen Dizayee, said that "the referendum on independence for the Kurdistan region was constitutional and it is not within the powers of the Kurdish leadership or government to cancel the results".

For his part, O'Donovan said that Ireland is determined to expand cooperation with Iran.

The independence referendum was opposed by many countries because it would threaten the integrity of Iraq and it could undermine fight against Islamic State militants.
