TEHRAN, Jul. 15 (MNA) – The Islamic Republic of Iran does not have any restrictions regarding the promotion of comprehensive relations and cooperation with the Republic of Azerbaijan, the Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council said.

Shamkhani considered the historical, cultural, and religious ties of the two nations undeniable, saying that the two countries should work in an atmosphere of mutual trust to introduce this common heritage to the world.

After the liberation of the territories of Azerbaijan in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, very suitable conditions have been created for Tehran and Baku to activate potential capacities in the fields of transit, oil, trade, and energy, he added.
