It Is Time for Turkey and Daesh to Part Ways
Thursday, August 25, 2016

Ja'far Haghpanah
Therefore, while on the one hand, continuation of the status quo in Turkey would cause the country to suffer more costs, on the other hand, cutting ties with such groups as Daesh needs great effort and fresher approaches. For this reason, the best way to drive Daesh out of Turkey is to opt for regional cooperation and follow regional initiatives.

Establishment of the Supreme Political Council in Yemen and the wide welcome given to establishment of this council by the country’s people have been among the latest political developments in the Arab country. After about two years, the Yemeni parliament convened and passed the decision for the establishment of a political council to run the country’s affairs through a majority vote.

Regional and International Goals of Russia's Military Presence in Iran
Tuesday, August 23, 2016

Alireza Noori
Tehran is aware of Russia's large-scale goals at international level, its ambitions in the Middle East, and its willingness to strike the “big deal” with the West, and therefore, looks upon military interaction with Moscow at this juncture as a “tactic,” which can be further developed only if it would meet the interests of both sides. Of course, Moscow is also aware of the fact that Tehran will not turn into a mere tool to promote its regional goals.

Behzad Khoshandam
Following the failed coup in Turkey on July 15, 2016 and two years after the US-led anti-Daesh coalition started its strikes in Syria, official confirmation on August 16, 2016 of Russia using Iran’s Nojeh Air Base in Hamedan, to fight terrorism in Syria is considered as a serious development in Iran’s foreign policy approach.

As Tanks Rumbled in Istanbul, Turkey Did Not Hear Supporting Voice of Saudi Rulers
Monday, August 22, 2016

Elyas Vahedi
During the recent coup attempt in Turkey, we clearly saw that the tanks did not start moving from Iran toward the Kaaba, but were moved into streets of Istanbul and Ankara by the agents of some suspicious countries. Also on the night of the coup, the people of Turkey did not hear a supporting voice from the rulers of the United States, Europe or Saudi Arabia, but they heard it from Iranian politicians who, like the people and statesmen in Turkey, stayed awake up to the morning.

Deployment of Russian Warplanes to Nojeh Air Base in Hamedan

A more important point is that Americans tried to prove that Russia's measure was against Paragraph 5, Annex B of the United Nations Security Council Resolution 2231, while in practice, there is no relationship between this cooperation and the aforesaid Security Council resolution on Iran. This is true because in its fight against terrorism, Iran has not received military articles from Russia and Russia merely takes advantage of logistic services provided at Nojeh Air Base. Meanwhile, the aforesaid Security Council resolution has banned delivery of military equipment to Iran in any form for five years, but taking advantage of aerial logistic services has not been banned by the resolution.

Iran, Russia, Turkey Triangle: Strategic Coalition or Tactical Alliance?
Friday, August 19, 2016

Mohammad Khajouei
No exaggeration should be made about close relations among Iran, Turkey and Russia by considering them to be necessarily a strategic coalition, or as claimed by some people, an anti-American coalition. This new triangle of cooperation should be considered a tactical alliance based on specific goals while maintaining the differential points that exist among its three sides. 

Turkey’s Future Approaches to Kurds in Syria
Thursday, August 18, 2016

Mohammad Ali Dastmali
Kurds – both followers of Barzani and the PKK – and AK Party converge on a point, which can be described as pragmatism and protection of interests, and at that point, they are willing to change their positions once in a while. So, if such changes were possible in the past, why it must not be like that at the present time? 

A More Resilient Chapter Opening in Middle East
Thursday, August 18, 2016

Siamak Kakaei
Turkey’s foreign policy has been undergoing relative changes following last month’s botched coup d’état and it seems that the period of inflexibility in the country’s foreign policy is over. One of the outcomes of the failed coup in the area of the country’s foreign policy was a new move by Turkey toward improvement of relations with neighboring countries, especially those countries which play an effective role in their peripheral regions.

The Future Outlook for Iran-Turkey Relations
Wednesday, August 17, 2016

Reza Solat
In fact, the failed coup served as a catalyst to elevate topics of talks between the two countries from one level to a higher one. On the other hand, the failed coup has served to tone down previously negative attitudes, which had done basic harm to relations between Tehran and Ankara. 
Recent improvement of relations between Iran and Turkey can be also considered within framework of the recent trilateral meeting among Iran, Azerbaijan and Russia.
