Iranian envoy regrets remarks by Azeri MPs on Armenia ties
Iran’s Ambassador to Azerbaijan Mohsen Pakayeen expressed regret over remarks by some Azeri lawmakers against a recent visit to Iran by Armenia’s Foreign Minister, Tasnim News Agency reports.
Such “unconventional” statements do not serve to develop the relations between the two friendly and brotherly countries, Pakayeen said in a press conference.
Armenia’s Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian visited Iran earlier in June and held talks with senior Iranian officials.
On Tuesday, a number of Azerbaijani parliamentarians criticized Iran during the discussion of a draft law on approval of a cooperation between Tehran and Baku.
They voiced discontent at the growing ties between Iran and Armenia, the visit by Armenian top diplomat to Tehran, the abolition of visa regime between the two countries, and a possible trip by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani to Armenia.
