Zarif says Azerbaijan Republic very important to Iran

Tehran, Aug 16, IRNA – Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said on Sunday that Azerbaijan Republic is a very significant country for Iran.

Addressing a ceremony to honor former foreign ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi, he added, "Since neighbors are priority of our foreign policy, Azerbaijan Republic is a very very important country for Iran."

"Mr. Mousavi could have chosen a simpler mission in Europe and Asia; but he chose Azerbaijan, and this shows the depth of strategic attitude of our dear brother, who chose the neighbor for the activity," Zarif said, wishing success for him.

"Today we have very good relations with Azerbaijan Republic, while at the beginning of the 11th government, our relations were very tense, but today we have one of the best and closest relations with this country, and God willingly, these relations will be strengthened with Mr. Mousavi's prudence," he said.
