ISTANBUL - Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu will visit Iran on Sunday after holding talks in Saudi Arabia focused on turmoil in the region, notably in Syria, a Turkish official said.

Davutoglu had been expected to return to Turkey on Sunday after meeting his Saudi counterpart, but now intends to carry out a whirlwind tour of regional hotspots before heading home late on Tuesday, the official said.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Selcuk Unal said discussions would cover the unrest in Syria, the neighbor that Turkey worries about most, and other Arab states like Bahrain, where Turkey has offered advice to defuse sectarian tensions, and touch on developments in Libya as well.

"It's just a sort of stock-taking, and an opportunity to transmit our thoughts on these issues," Unal said.
