An official of the Cultural Center of Iranian Embassy in Azerbaijan has been deported from the country, Iranian news website Qafqaz.ir reported.
Despite the fact that the Iranian diplomat had an official passport and three months visa from the Azerbaijani Embassy in Tehran, he was deported from Azerbaijan from Astara Customs House while returning from leave, said the Iranian website.
“Azerbaijan’s unfriendly attitude to Iranian diplomats is not limited to this. Azerbaijan recently refused to issue one-year visa to Iranian Supreme Leader’s representative in Baku.
Azerbaijan puts pressure on Iranian diplomats working in Azerbaijan and limits their activities, while Iran one-sidedly lifted visa requirements for Azerbaijani citizens two years ago.”
