Syria, seized by mass rallies since early March, has turned into an arena of struggle for leadership in the region between Iran and Turkey, of whom each in their own estimate the crisis in the country, experts say.
The leadership in the region largely depends on the resolution of the Syrian crisis, and therefore, Iran and Turkey are competing for control over the situation in this country, an analyst on the Middle East Saleh Zaitoon said.
„Iran can not give up its principles in the Syrian issue, and it creates even more tense situation in the country,“ Zaitoon told Trend by telephone from Amman.
He said such a situation where each side considers the solution to the conflict in different ways could further exacerbate the situation in Syria.
The Chairman of the Iranian Parliament’s Commission for National Security and Foreign Affairs Alaeddin Boroujerdi reiterated Iran’s support for Syria, Reuters reported.
„The interests of the Muslim world are to get mobilized to protect Syria like a center of Palestinian resistance,“ said Boroujerdi.
