Envoy: improvement of Iran-Armenia ties will promote Karabakh settlement

PanARMENIAN.Net – Tehran can assist in the settlement of the Nagorno Karabakh conflict through improving ties with Armenia, Iranian ambassador to Azerbaijan said.

“Baku is wrong in believing that freezing of Tehran-Yerevan ties will impair Armenian economy, thus promoting the Karabakh conflict settlement,” the official website of the Iranian embassy in Azerbaijan cited Mohsen Pak Ayeen as saying.

“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.
