Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Monday congratulated Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan on the victory of his party in the parliamentary elections, the official IRNA news agency reported.

In a telephone conversation on Monday evening with Erdogan, Ahmadinejad wished progress and security for the Turkish nation and government, Iran's Presidential Office Media Department was quoted as saying.

Erdogan, whose Justice and Development Party (AKP) won Turkey's parliamentary elections on Sunday, also wished prosperity and progress for the Iranian government and nation, said the office.

In Sunday's elections, the ruling AKP gained 46.5 percent of the total votes, and the Republican People's Party (CHP) and the Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) garnered 20.9 percent and 14.3 percent respectively.

Other parties did not gain enough support to clear the 10 percent hurdle to enter parliament.

Turkey's parliamentary elections had been scheduled to be held on Nov. 4 but were brought forward because of the failure to elect a new president after the opposition party CHP boycotted the presidential election in late April and early May.
