Iran says has good ties with Azerbaijan, Armenia

Tehran, IRNA – The spokesman for Iran's Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in his weekly press briefing on Monday that Tehran has good relations with Baku and Yerevan.

The Islamic Republic of Iran's cooperation with no country is against any other state, Saeed Khatibzadeh told reporters.

Referring to the Monday visit of Armenian Foreign Minister Ararat Mirzoyan to Tehran, the spokesman said that the visit had already been scheduled and took place in line with widening bilateral relations.

Mirzoyan arrived in Tehran on October 4 to hold talks with his Iranian counterpart Hossein Amirabdollahian on bilateral issues and important regional questions.

Speaking about presence of terrorists in Republic of Azerbaijan near borders of the Islamic Republic of Iran, the spokesman said that Iran has received these reports from the outset of the war.

Tehran did deliver all those reports to its friends in Baku, he underlined.

As the spokesman stressed, Tehran and Baku have interactions at different levels. 

In recent months, Iran has always pursued its principled policies, Khatibzadeh noted, adding that Islamic Republic has told its friends in Baku that it recognizes the territorial integrity and national sovereignty of Azerbaijan and has helped the northwestern neighbor to preserve them.

About the Zionist regime's measures and remarks against Iran from the Azeri soil, the spokesman said that Baku should not let a third party misuse its borders and land.

Iran knows well how to protect its security, but Azerbaijan should do its sovereign duties, he said.   

Also about arrest of Iranian drivers in Azerbaijan, Khatibzadeh said that Iran does not see the behavior towards its drivers within the framework of good neighborliness.

Azeri officials should be much more careful of their border guards' behavior towards Iranian nationals.
