Nardaran events – Azerbaijan’s internal affair, says Iranian parliament speaker

Recent events in Baku’s Nardaran settlement are an internal affair of Azerbaijan, Iranian parliament speaker Ali Larijani told reporters on Tuesday.

Unfortunately, some media outlets are intending to cause tension between Iran and Azerbaijan over Nardaran’s events, said the speaker.

According to him, Iran and Azerbaijan enjoy friendly and fraternal relations. “Both countries have for many years been living in friendship and good neighborliness. We have similar traditions,” he said.

Larijani also commented on the deterioration of relations between Turkey and Russia after Turkey shot down a Russian Su-24 fighter.

Iran is very concerned over the tension between Turkey and Russia, the speaker said, noting that “this is not the right way in the fight against terrorism.”
