A National Security and Foreign Policy Parliament Commission member Javad Jahangirzadeh expressed Iran’s readiness to assist in the settlement of the Nagorno Karabakh conflict, IRNA said.
As the Iranian MP noted during a Baku-hosted meeting with Azeri parliament speaker Ogtay Asadov, “Tehran is ready to assist in the settlement of the Kababakh conflict to provide regional security.”
As Iranian ambassador to Azerbaijan said in July, “Tehran can assist in the settlement of the Nagorno Karabakh conflict through improving ties with Armenia.”
“Baku is wrong in believing that freezing of Tehran-Yerevan ties will impair Armenian economy, thus promoting the Karabakh conflict settlement,” Mohsen Pak Ayeen said.
“Despite friendly relations with Azerbaijan, several U.S. states officially recognized the NKR independence. We believe to be able to promote Karabakh settlement through improving ties with Armenia. Moreover, good relations between Yerevan and Tehran prevented the conflict from assuming a religious nature,” the envoy said.
In conclusion, the ambassador expressed hope for a peaceful settlement of the issue.
