PanARMENIAN.Net – A National Security and Foreign Policy Parliament
Commission member Javad Jahangirzadeh expressed Iran’s readiness to
assist in the settlement of the Nagorno Karabakh conflict, IRNA said.
As the Iranian MP noted during a Baku-hosted meeting with Azeri
parliament speaker Ogtay Asadov, “Tehran is ready to assist in the
settlement of the Kababakh conflict to provide regional security.”
As Iranian ambassador to Azerbaijan said in July, “Tehran can assist
in the settlement of the Nagorno Karabakh conflict through improving
ties with Armenia.”
“Baku is wrong in believing that freezing of Tehran-Yerevan ties
will impair Armenian economy, thus promoting the Karabakh conflict
settlement,” Mohsen Pak Ayeen said.
“Despite friendly relations with Azerbaijan, several U.S. states
officially recognized the NKR independence. We believe to be able to
promote Karabakh settlement through improving ties with Armenia.
Moreover, good relations between Yerevan and Tehran prevented the
conflict from assuming a religious nature,” the envoy said.
In conclusion, the ambassador expressed hope for a peaceful settlement
of the issue.
