Iran starts assisting to Garabagh conflict settlement
Baku, Fineko/abc.az. Iran has claimed again of its interest to assist to settlement of Armenian-Azerbaijani Nagorno Garabagh conflict.
Today in Baku Iranian ambassador Mammadbagir Bahrami to Azerbaijan stated that Iran’s aid in settlement of Garabagh problem began from the Tehran visit of Azerbaijani minister for foreign affairs Elmar Mammadyarov.
“This process started from the relevant consent of Azerbaijani leader Ilham Aliyev,” Bahrami said.
Iran wants to use its potential for tackling of regional problems.
“OSCE Minsk Group has been dealing with the conflict over 18 years but has failed to settle it. Whether it was not able or did not want to do that, but the fact is that the problem still remains unsettled. Possibly, the co-chair countries watch over their own interests. Another issue is that regional problems should be settled by countries of the region themselves, and that is why we want to use our potential for assistance to fair solution of Garabagh matter,” Bahrami said.
At the same time he called the conflict settlement within territorial integrity of Azerbaijan the only fair way.
“Iran has always defended this position. The soon stability restores in the region the earlier its development starts. Fair solution of Garabagh conflict issue will bring favor to all countries of the region,” Bahrami stated. http://abc.az/eng/news_25_02_2010_42959.html
