Turkish-Iranian Relations in a Changing Middle East

Excerpt

The Arab Spring has intensified the historic rivalry between Turkey and Iran, two of the Middle East’s most powerful nation-states. Although economic cooperation between the two countries has improved in the past decade, Turkey and Iran are increasingly at odds on a number of issues in the Middle East, particularly Syria. The relationship between these two important countries presents some opportunities, as well as challenges, for U.S. interests in the region.
