The foreign minister noted that development of relations between countries has been discussed at the meetings with his Iranian counterpart.
“It is not a secret that there has been tension, certain disagreements between two countries a while ago, but it has been removed within a short period of time. A sincere meeting has been held between Iranian and Azerbaijani heads of state in Ashgabat, a wide range of issues have been discussed,” he added.
In a meeting with Azerbaijan Republic’s President Ilham Aliyev in Baku, Amir Abdollahian welcomed the expansion of bilateral ties with the Azerbaijan Republic and what he called “unique commonalities” between the two countries.
“A new chapter has opened in the relations between the two countries and this will have a positive impact for both nations. We are ready to finalize all previous projects and to lay the basis for new agreements between the two countries,” the Iran’s foreign minister stated in the meeting with Aliyev in Baku.
Aliyev also agreed that regional issues should be resolved among regional countries and expressed Baku’s opposition to any interference by extra-regional countries.
The Azerbaijani president also described his recent meeting with his Iranian counterpart Ebrahim Raisi on the sidelines of the summit of the Economic Cooperation Organization in Ashgabat as “fruitful”.
