Despite their differences, the foreign ministers of Turkey and Iran are pledging greater cooperation on trying to resolve the Syrian crisis – after meeting in Ankara.
Tehran backs the government of President Bashar al-Assad, while Ankara advocates his departure.
“We have some subjects which we agreed on, especially on Syria’s territorial integrity and borders. We had disagreements over some issues,” Mevlut Cavusoglu, Turkey’s foreign minister, told reporters.
“We have to fight together against these terrorist organisations. For permanent peace and a solution in Syria, we’ll strengthen our cooperation.”

I still wonder if the failed coup attempt was such, just foiled by Russian Intelligence.
So in the great game it is Turkey playing Russia and NATO against each other to its own advantage.
Turkey will lead Russia on to get what it wants from the West.
How long will that last? Who knows. At what point will NATO walk away giving up key ally in a strategic area?
