DOES AZERBAIJAN INTEND TO PUT THE HEAT ON ARMENIA THROUGH IRAN?
ArmInfo. Iran has enough mechanism of influence on Armenia in order
to achieve fair solution to the Karabakh conflict, spokesman for
Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry Elkhan Polukhov said, APA reports.
"Using these mechanisms we hope that we can achieve solution to this
conflict in accordance with the international norms and standards",
Polukhov said. When commenting on the statement of Iranian ambassador
Mahammad Bagir Bahrami saying "Iran has started assisting in the
settlement of Nagorno Karabakh conflict", Polukhov said: "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", spokesman said.
