Envoy Stresses Friendship, Peace on Iranian, Azeri BordersMousavi on a Twitter post, addressing the Azerbaijan Republic’s President Ilham Aliyev, wrote, that the people living along shared border between Iran and Azerbaijan Republic will continue to live in peace, friendship and security forever, adding that there is no need for the interference of ill-wishers in the region.  

He noted that the Iranian people are happy if they see their Muslim brothers and sisters in Azerbaijan are happy.

In relevant remarks on Friday, Spokesman for the Iranian Armed Forces Brigadier General Abolfazl Shekarchi warned Armenia and the Azerbaijan Republic to avoid crossing Iran’s red lines, stressing that their dispute can be resolved through dialogue.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran, while reinforcing the defensive measures at border areas, stresses that the security of border areas and Iranian people is the country’s red line,” Shekarchi said on Friday, adding that a number of shells have hit the Iranian territory following the military conflict between the Caucasian states.

He urged Yerevan and Baku to settle their issues through political means, be alert against external interference, and not violate Iran’s territorial integrity.

The conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan over the highland region of Nagorno-Karabakh, a disputed territory that had been part of Azerbaijan before the Soviet Union break-up, but primarily populated by ethnic Armenians, broke out in February 1988 after the Nagorno-Karabakh Autonomous Region announced its withdrawal from the Azerbaijan Soviet Socialist Republic.
