Security Outlook of Iran Under Ahmadinejad

by Bayram Sinkaya from the Journal of Turkish Weekly

The policy of exporting revolution raised concerns among neighboring Muslim countries including Turkey, Pakistan, Iraq etc. On the other hand, Islamic Revolution in 1979 was perceived as a “Shiite movement” above else, and raised concerns in Sunni movements and those countries like S. Arabia championing the Sunni/Wahhabi branch of Islam. Nevertheless these concerns did not lead to “severe”/military conflicts between Iran and the neighboring countries with the exception of Iraq.
