Iran calls for permanent solution to Karabakh crisis
Iran on Wednesday called for a permanent solution to the conflict in Karabakh, signaling readiness to play a role in strengthening a ceasefire deal between Azerbaijan and Armenia in the disputed region, Anadolu agnecy reports.
This came during a meeting between Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and visiting Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Jeyhun Baymarov in Tehran.
Reiterating his government’s position on the conflict and support for Azerbaijan’s territorial integrity, Rouhani said his government endorses the ceasefire and liberation of the occupied territories, his office said in a statement.
Last month, Iran welcomed a peace deal between Baku and Yerevan to end hostilities and hoped it would “lead to final arrangements in establishing sustainable peace in the Caucasus”.
