    Why Is Erdogan Angry?

    TEHRAN _ Recent statements by Turkish government officials against Bashar al-Assad and the Syrian government have again made the stark confrontation between Ankara and Damascus public. This conflict has lasted for years between the two neighboring countries. The support of Erdogan and members of the AKP from ISIS and the al-Nusra Front in Syria over the past years is not something that can be ignored. Turkish government authorities who have made a major and strategic mistake in protecting Takfiri terrorism in Syria, continue to make the same mistake in confronting the Syrian crisis. Recent remarks by the Turkish PM indicate Ankara is still not going to correct its misplaced approach toward Damascus.

    Five Points on Western Missile Policy toward Iran

    In recent weeks, we have witnessed Western political and media propaganda against our country's missile power. This trend has intensified after the defeat of ISIS in Syria and Iraq, which is considered to be a defeat of the West in the region. Donald Trump, the U.S. President, in his controversial speech against the nuclear deal, also called for the inclusion of Iran's missile capability as a prerequisite for maintaining the nuclear deal by the United States. On the other hand, French President Emanuel Macron has repeatedly expressed concern over our country's missile power over the past few days. Macron has called for talks with Iran on this issue. It's obvious that there exists cooperation among Western officials in opposition to Iran's missile program. There are some points that need to be addressed in this regard:
