Iran says new chapter opened in ties with Azerbaijan

A new chapter has been opened in relations between the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Republic of Azerbaijan, Tehran’s ambassador to Baku Abbas Mousavi said.

"We were able to overcome these tensions with the wisdom of the leaders of the two countries and the diplomats of the two countries, and I can honestly say that we overcame these tensions and a new chapter in the relations between the two friendly countries, brothers, neighbors and Muslims started in the area," Mousavi told Tehran Times.

He added that the recent tension between the two countries that followed border clashes between Azerbaijan and Armenia was "unintentional and artificial".

Ambassador also described Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian’s visit to Baku on Dec. 22-23 as positive as he held fruitful talks with Azeri President Ilham Aliyev, Foreign Minister Jeyhun Bayramov and Parliament Speaker Saheba Gafarova.

Mousavi also says Israel definitely will not be able to undermine the relations between Iran and Azerbaijan which their cultural, religious, ethnic, and linguistic affinities are rooted in history.

"Now I can confidently say that a new chapter in the relations between the two neighboring countries has begun," the ambassador stressed.
