Several letters sent by the Turkish Prime Minister, "Ahmet Davutoglu" during his visit to Tehran;where he confirmed the existence of good relations between Turkey and Iran, despite differences in regional issues, also stressed his country's rejection of any division in Syria, and the need to keep it unified.
The Iranian president, "Hassan Rowhani" has not delayed to share Turkey its point of view about the unity of Syria, and stressed that Iran informed Russia, which called for a federal state in Syria, that Syria must still be  united.
The loss of Iran's key role in Syria
The reality indicates the loss of Iran's essential role in Syria in favor of Russia, and leaks refer to the Armistice Agreement held by Moscow with Washington, the  Iranians were not consulted by the Russians, and that the United States did not consult its allies, reinforcing the idea of ​​the two poles to cut the road of the regional countries’ roles.
In contrast, Russia has become at the moment is the first State responsible for the crimes in Syria, and the displacement of tens of thousands of people toward Turkey and Europe; where the last few days seen an unprecedented escalation positions of NATO towards Russia; where the deputy NATO commander accused both the regime and Russia that they designed  the barrel bombs weapon specifically for the displacement of the population in order to put pressure on Europe.
All of the above may push the regional countries to seek new understandings on the Syrian file, and to exchange effect, which could pave the way to a different use of the complex file.
Common fears of Kurdish paper
There is no doubt that Turkey is the most affected country to find a pro- PKK Kurdish entity in northeastern Syria near the Turkish border.  It is sure that Iran did and still use the PKK- paper against Turkey to make the latter somehow confused internally and remove its influence in Syria as much as possible, but such a use does not exceed an interim tactical act, and talking about creating an independent Kurdish entity in Syria seems to cast a shadow over "Tehran" itself which has a number of Kurds residents amounted 9 million, representing 10% of the total population, so this paper leaves Iranians to be a Russia’s , which apparently intend to go away with it which would turn the tables on the Iranians and encourage the Kurdish Iranians to turn against their government just like what the Kurdish Democratic Union Party had done, the Iranian-backed group; where PYD became more closely related to the Russians, which in turn opened a Kurdish representative office in Moscow.
Turkey the West gate to Iran
After the lifting of Western sanctions on Iran, in the wake of the nuclear deal, Western investment companies and even the United States heads to Iran's crude market, the same thing has encouraged Turkey to economic advantage, opening the appetite of investors; where Davutoglu accompanied on his visit to Tehran , the Minister of Economy ,the Minister of Energy, and the Transportation  Minister, considering the Turkish location  will form the gate area and crossing for goods and Iranian energy flying to Europe, in addition to Turkey relies on Iran with up to 27% of the original oil needs.
Since economics is ranked number one, such mutual interests may open the way to find new understandings on various regional issues, mainly the Syrian file, it does not have to happen in the foreseeable future.
It should be noted that the growing Turkish- Gulf rapprochement , which culminates in the arrival of Saudi and Emirati and Qatari aircraft to Incirlik base, and raise the proportion of Saudi investments in Turkey, which reached $ 11 billion at the beginning of this year, will have a key role in determining Turkey's options, which means that Turks will not be one-sided decision makers in Syria apart from the regional coalition, which is still insisting on the departure of al-Assad, and the transitional government, and believes that the reason for the emergence of the Islamic State Group (IS) , and the existence of separatist Kurds is al-Assad staying in power.
To talk about a change in the Iranian position remains a difficult matter, even in the presence of significant economic incentives, especially that the Iranians still continue recruiting Shiites mercenaries from different countries to fight against the Syrian people to the moment, but the possibility of changing is still open to all levels, especially since the Russian intervention in Syria which mixes many papers.
