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.
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 !
