Baku. Elnur Mammadli-APA. Ambassador extraordinary and plenipotentiary
of Iran to Azerbaijan Nasir Hamidi Zare has today held a press
conference in connection with the 60th anniversary of Israeli state,
APA reports. The ambassador said that territories of Palestine
were occupied 60 years ago and illegal Israeli state was declared
there. Nasir Hamidi Zare expressed his regret that this date was
celebrated as a holiday in a number of countries.

"I think Azerbaijani People share the grief of Iran and Palestine and
all the peoples of all the three countries do not approve the injustice
of great states. Of course, double standards of a number of countries
caused this injustice. Who tries to liberate its occupied lands is
called a terrorist. Azerbaijani People will be called terrorists,
if they attempt to liberate their occupied territories", he said.

The ambassador said that the peoples of Iran, Azerbaijan and Palestine
resisted the occupants.

Nasir Hamidi Zare mentioned that Iranian people liberated their lands
after eight-year struggle.

"Azerbaijani People will also liberate their lands", he said.

The diplomat said Iran supported Azerbaijan’s position on Nagorno
Karabakh problem and recognized its territorial integrity.

"Even if the whole world recognizes Nagorno Karabakh as Armenian
territory, Iran will recognize this area as Azerbaijan’s territory",
he said.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
