Understanding the relationship between Turkey and Iran and Syria requires an understanding of Russia's meddling in the area and Russia's intentions. Following the U.S. led bombing of strategic chemical weapons depots in Syria after these chemical weapons had been used against citizens in Syria, the leader of Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdogan made public statements supporting the strikes in Syria despite having made recent agreements with both Russia and Iran to form strategic interests in the region. Turkey welcomes the strikes, Russia, Syria and Iran vociferously condemn them. So what is the relationship here?
Geopolitics explains it all. Iran has been attempting for years to influence Syria by way of Iran's Shiite dominated government. Russia supports the Assad government because the Assad government grants Russia military access to the country. The end game to all of this is both oil and power and as usual Israel, particularly the land of Israel is the end game for Putin and his geopolitical ambitions there in the Middle East. They desperately want to set up shop just to the north of Israel inside of Syria.
All of these nations want to see the annihilation of the Jewish State simply because of power and control of the region. Leaders of both Iran and Turkey have publicly called for such measures and Russia plays all of them like a violin often allowing them to do their dirty work while at the same time jockeying for 1st place when it comes time for direct access to the borders of Israel. Russia has never purposefully opposed these statements from leaders of Turkey or Iran because they help to serve Russia's main objectives there.
