Tension in Tehran-Baku relations being eliminated: Azerbaijani official

News ID: 2842670 -
TEHRAN, July 14 (MNA) – A senior official at the Azeri presidential office says tensions between Iran and the Republic of Azerbaijan are being eliminated and this has resulted from the will of the two countries’ officials, the Trend News Agency reported.

Ali Hasanov argued that some Western countries were responsible for creating tension in the two neighbors’ relations.

“As it is known, several Western circles, including some anti-Azerbaijani and anti-Iranian circles, played an important role in this situation,” he stated.

He said a “confrontation between the two neighboring countries” or a breakup of the relations will serve “the interests” of what he called “some geopolitical, official and unofficial circles.”

He added, “The visit of Iranian special envoy at the ministerial level (to Baku), the invitation of Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev to Iran and calls in a letter sent in connection with this invitation, demonstrate the country’s desire to avoid confrontation with Azerbaijan.”

President Aliyev has been invited to participate in the Non-Aligned Movement summit in Tehran in late August.
