Tehran, IRNA – Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Nasser Kanaani has renewed Tehran’s call for a peaceful settlement of disputes between Armenia and Azerbaijan, saying Iran is concerned about rising tensions on the border between the countries.

In a statement on Tuesday, Kanaani called on Armenia and Azerbaijan to exercise restraint after clashes on the border between the two led to several deaths and injuries.

He reiterated that dialogue and diplomacy are the only way to sustainable and permanent peace in the Caucasus region while calling on the two countries to speed up efforts to reach a peace deal.
