Spokesman: Iran to Further Broaden Relations with Azerbaijan

Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Hossein Jaberi Ansari underlined Tehran’s resolve to broaden bilateral ties with neighbouring countries

“Tehran is looking for the expansion of relations with Baku,” Jaberi Ansari said on Tuesday May 3.

He underlined that the Iranian government is looking to boost its diplomatic interactions with other international countries.

In relevant remarks in February, Iranian and Azeri Presidents Hassan Rouhani and Ilham Aliyev called for greater cooperation between the two neighbours in the war against terrorism and extremism.

“Iran and Azerbaijan are determined to strengthen cooperation in the ongoing war on terror in the region,” Rouhani said at a joint press conference with Aliyev in Tehran.

He said the two neighbours also believe that regional crises should be settled through dialog and not militarily.
