Iran has suspended a few days ago visa free entry for the citizens of Turkey, amid growing tensions between the two countries related to developments in the region and the involvement of Turkey in Syria's unrest.

It might be intended as a rap across the knuckles for Turkey, but who gets hurt here? If Turks with spending money are discouraged - due to red tape - from flying to Turkey, they'll just fly elsewhere. Who loses? The Iranian economy - which can ill afford to lose more foreign earnings.

I think it's a panic measure by Iran, which is probably fearing the loss of the most important regional ally it has, with all that goes with that. A panic measure that only hurts them (Iran).

A very small number of Turks travel to Iran, the tourism is 10x the other way around. Turkey is the one getting more and more isolated in the region as a whole, not Iran. Who's Turkey's ally now in the ME, Isreal? Give me a break.

What are you getting at? Associating with Iran isn't a great idea for anybody, especially Turkey.



No matter how random things may appear, there's always a plan.

Interesting, tourism in Turkey is at full blast. Now that the gulf countries ordered there citizens not to travel to Lebanon, i assure you that Turkey will be there destinations. Now apart from Syria and Iran, Turkey has a great relations with all other countries. you mind telling us how you came to that conclusion, please.

Turkey getting isolated?

Turkey everyday looks like a model role model for the region.

And regarding tourism, Turkey again this year will be setting arrival records, including lots traffic from neighboring states.
Matter of fact Turkey has never been more popular on Arab streets that currently. This can be seen with huge upswing in tourism and trade.

Now if you want to speak about isolated, then Iran is the piraya state. It has much more to lose in the geopolitical world if links with Turkey become strained.

Think your off the mark big time here . If Turkey wants to hurt Iran they can ban members of the government and make Iranians need visas for Turkey. Iran will hurt more. Iran is getting more and more isolated by the day and will continue to suffer. Friends of mine in Iran are expecting air strikes within 12 months and a huge drop in their already ever depleting standard of living . They are sick of the regime that rules them but cant speak openly about it .

Turkey has taken a surprisingly positive stance in the regional crisis and I support what they are trying to do .

As for tourism they will not suffer as plenty of wealthy Arabs from the Gulf States still flock there as do many Europeans. Iranians will soon find a very limited list of countries that they can visit and anyone connected with the Iranian regime will find it impossible as time goes on . Long gone will be those London/New York/Paris shopping trips that they love to take .   I think Harrods will suffer more than Turkey !
