Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Tuesday that Turkey and Syria would carry out a joint fight against terrorism.

Erdogan thanked the Syrian administration for its endeavors and support in fighting terrorism at a joint press conference with his Syrian counterpart Muhammad Naji Otri after their talks in the Turkish capital of Ankara, and said Turkey's cooperation with Syria regarding fight against terrorism was remarkable.

"With the agreement we signed today, we have boosted our cooperation in countering terrorism, and I believe we will continue our joint fight with the same determination, as terrorism is our common enemy," Erdogan said.

Earlier on Tuesday, Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu and his Syrian counterpart Walid Mualem signed an agreement envisaging cooperation in combatting terrorism and terrorist organizations.

The agreement was part of the second meeting of the Turkish- Syrian High-Level Strategic Cooperation Council that took place in Ankara.
