Erdogan stressed the significance of maintaining peace and stability in Iran. He also welcomed Rouhani's remarks earlier on urging the public to not indulge in violent acts, while exercising their right to protest peacefully.
According to a Turkish presidential source, Rouhani told Erdogan that the protests in Iran would hopefully end within a few days.
Iran is still witnessing a wave of demonstrations, being held in many cities across the country as people took to raising anti-government slogans, over alleged corruption and rising prices that plagued the people of the country earlier this week.
The official death toll in the protests has risen to 20. Scores of protestors have been arrested in the last few days.
