A Modest Demand

This should go over well in Turkey:
"The Iranian government has called on Turkey to enforce rules for Islamic clothing for women -- the hijab -- at hotels in Anatolia that are frequented by Iranians, Turkish newspapers reported on December 7, according to Radio Farda. Should Turkey fail to comply with this demand, the newspapers continued, then Iran will no longer permit direct flights to Anatolia. The Iranian request came during Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's meeting with First Vice President Parviz Davudi in Tehran during the first weekend of December, Radio Farda reported. Davudi told his guest that one million Iranians visit Turkey every year, and he went on to express concern that images of scantily clad Iranian beachgoers have appeared in the Turkish media."
