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",
