Why is Mr Erdogan so tolerant to Iran. No insults no angry statements or rude shouting. And then we should keep in mind that Iranian border patrols kill Turkish citizens every year and it was not long ago Iran threatened to attack Turkey. And the way Iran treats Muslims is really horrible, much worse than any other country and certainly far worse than Muslims are treated in Israel.

As the solution on syria at the ınternational stage has hardly become possible since the clashing interests of permanent members of Security Council, Turkey seems to accelarate its efforts at the regional context as in the discussions between Iranian and Turkey counterparts. This method, I think, could be very usefull than the other one that Turkey tried US and other global forces to persuade for intervention to Syria. Before anything else, the regional solution for Syria is more likely possible

I can just imagine Erdoğan asking Ahmadinejad: "How can I get the public to accept me as 'President' for the next 20 years? They are so out of control in Turkey!! We need to cooperate more on democratic reforms!"

"Erdogan and Ahmadinejad meet during a Democracy forum......" sounds like the beginning of a great joke. Care to suggest the punchline?
