The waiving of visas allowed closer economic interaction and tourism to flourish, but analysts say many Syrian businessmen opened accounts in Turkey to keep funds safe across the border.

“It is believed that some business groups that support the regime have interests in Turkey. Measures may be taken against these,” Ulutas said.

“Iran, Russia and China still back Syria. Turkey is risking facing opposition from all these countries by its attitude against Syria,” he said. “Turkey-Syria ties are back to square one, back to the times of insecurity. Turkey stands to lose.” (By Tulay Karadeniz and Ibon Villelabeitia; Writing by Ibon Villelabeitia; Editing by Alistair Lyon)
