Despite tensions between the leadership in Turkey and Iran over the conflict in Syria, intelligence services in the two countries maintain close cooperation, Turkish daily Hurriyet
cited Iran's ambassador to Ankara as saying Friday.
Weeks after Turkey denied reports that it revealed to the Islamic Republic the identities of some ten Iranian nationals spying for the Mossad, Iranian envoy Alireza Bikdeli told reporters in Ankara that Iranian and Turkish intelligence agencies were working in "close collaboration".
On Thursday, a senior Turkish official told London based Ashraq al-Awsat
that relations between Tehran and Ankara were continuing to improve.
