Iran Addresses Azerbaijan Notes on Forest Fires
Iran has sent to Azerbaijan a note in the risk of spreading of fires to the near-border regions, Azeri Minister of Ecology and Natural Resources Huseyn Bagirov said. "Since 2002 Azerbaijan has received notes from Iran on the possible risk of spreading of the forest fires in Karabakh security zone onto the territory of Iran. I say this because our arguments are often considered to be unimpressive, and this is the argument of a third party," the Minister said.
To note, OSCE Chairman-in-Office Karl De Gucht submitted to the Armenian and Azerbaijani MFA a report on the outcomes of the monitoring held in the near-border regions by his Personal Representative Andrzej Kasprzyk.
