Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian underlined that Iran will never tolerate the presence of the fake Zionist regime near its frontiers.
Speaking at a televised program on Saturday night, Amirabdollahian expressed concern regarding certain provocations by the Israeli regime near Iran’s borders in the Republic of Azerbaijan.
The regime, he said, used the flare-up of tensions between Azerbaijan and Armenia over the Nagorno-Karabakh region earlier this year to establish a presence in parts of Azerbaijan.
He, however, called the efforts “abortive” and said, “We never tolerate the Zionist regime’s presence and its provocative measures near the Islamic Republic’s borders.”
A recent military maneuver conducted inside Iran near Azerbaijan’s borders was meant to “relay a message (of warning) to the Zionists,” the top diplomat reminded.
“The Islamic Republic has always declared its position of calling the Israeli regime illegitimate,” the senior diplomat stated.
