TEHRAN, Sep. 25 (MNA) – The Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani said Tuesday that Iran has a clear strategy to develop relations with the Republic of Azerbaijan.

Referring to the threat of terrorism in the region, the Iranian parliament said that terrorism is of a migratory nature and terrorists are moving to other countries from Iraq and Syria as they have come under pressure in those two countries.

Larijani then called the Israeli regime a 'seditionist’ in the region, expressing Iran’s readiness to exchange experiences with regard to fighting terrorism.

The Azerbaijani minister of Internal Affairs, for his part, expressed his happiness with the meetings he has had during the visit to Iran, underlining that Azerbaijan attaches great importance to its relations with the Islamic Republic.

Usubov described his country’s bilateral relations with Iran as growing and said that he has had good talks on combating organized crimes with Iranian officials during the visit.

He further emphasized exchange of experiences between the two countries with respect to fighting terrorism, calling for closer cooperation on the fight against organized crimes, especially drug trafficking.

He also expressed his condolences to the people and the government of Iran over a terror attack on a military parade in southwestern Iranian city of Ahvaz.

The Azeri minister also called for closer relations between the parliamentary friendship groups of the two countries, stressing that the friendly relations between the two sides started at the time of late leader Heydar Aliyev and the current leader Ilhan Aliyev is continuing his policy.
