Feb 25 2010
Baku. Viktoria Dementieva – APA. Spokesman for Azerbaijani Foreign
Ministry Elkhan Polukhov commented to APA on the statement of Iranian
ambassador Mahammad Bagir Bahrami "Iran has started assisting in the
settlement of Nagorno Karabakh conflict".
"This is nothing new here. Iran borders on Azerbaijan. As you know,
a part of this border is not controlled by Azerbaijan at present. And
Iran would be interested in the restoration of peace in the region
and Azerbaijan’s control over these borders. On the other hand, Iran
is the neighbor of Azerbaijan and Armenia and would be interested
in creating conditions to achieve solution to the conflict. In this
respect, Iran is ready to support the process," he said.
Elkhan Polukhov added that Iran had enough mechanism of influence on
Armenia in order to achieve fair solution to the conflict.
"Using these mechanisms we hope that we can achieve solution to this
conflict in accordance with the international norms and standards,"
