    I personally think Iran will have good relations with Turkey regardless of the regime in power. It has been so for centuries despite the many different dynasties coming and going as well as the latests. The Persian-Turk dynamic is a well-done and mature relationship that has been stabilized for centuries now. While I may not know what the future has in terms of centuries from now, but for any foreseeable future (our lifespan) it will remain cordial and cooperative. Regardless of either country's swings toward secularism or otherwise. I (as well as my Turkish friends)may not like Erdogan personally, but the fact that he IS pointing to hypocricy here doesn't have anything to do with my personal feelings about his political agenda. As the famous Turkish proverb goes: Stick the needle into yourself (to see how it hurts) before you thrust the packing-needle into others....
