I've Been Thinking:
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammed Zarif is visiting Turkey today, Saturday.
This is a follow up visit.
Earlier in March, Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu visited Iran.
Relations between Turkey and Iran are strained - and Turkey needs those relations to improve.
Turkey and Iran each back opposing sides in Syria, but they are united against the Kurds and Kurdish independence.
Iran and Turkey are not natural allies. There is so much that separates them. But at this point they are united against Western influences - specifically Russian and US influences in the region.
It is possible that, with these visits, Iran might just be able to mollify the tension with Iran. We need to watch carefully and monitor what happens.
