"A probable clash may cause changes in the regional and international balances, deepen the existing polarization and create new poles," retired general Armagan Kuloglu said during a symposium in Ankara.
The Strategical Studies Center of Turkish Retired Officers' Association (TESSAM) organized the symposium on "Tension Between USA and Iran and Its Impacts on Turkey" at Ankara's Gazi University.
"Turkey may get stuck in between its neighbor Iran and ally USA in such a case," Kuloglu told during the symposium in which he assessed the military consequences and impacts of a probable clash that may take place as a result of such tension.
Kuloglu also said therefore, Turkey should try to keep the both parties away from a clash.
Meanwhile, Sukru Elekdag, a retired ambassador and an MP from Republican People's Party (CHP), said it is not rational to own nuclear weapons in today's unipolar world, despite USA's presence.
Elekdag said he does not expect the USA to wage a military operation on Iran which is claimed to develop nuclear weapons.
