Azeri defense min. congratulates Dehqan on endorsement

Azerbaijan’s Defense Minister Safar Abiyev has congratulated Hossein Dehqan on his endorsement as Iran’s defense minister.

In a message on Wednesday, Lieutenant General Abiyev wished Dehqan success and called for the expansion of relations between Iran and Azerbaijan in military affairs.

Iran and Azerbaijan stated their defense cooperation in the late 1990s and have kept the level of their defense ties at a satisfactory level, the Fars news agency says.

Dehqan, nominated by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani as the country’s defense minister, obtained the vote of confidence from Iran’s Majlis (parliament) last week.

The new Iranian defense minister was the only nominee who faced no opposition at the parliament hearing.
