Tehran, Baku can fix their current issues, according to Iran's FM

According to the Iranian foreign minister, Tehran and Baku are capable of settling their current issues without the assistance of other parties.

Iran (IMNA) - In an early Monday morning phone call with his Azerbaijani colleague, Jeyhun Bayramov, Hossein Amir-Abdollahian made the comments.

The Islamic Republic of Iran's top diplomat declared during the conversation that "relations between the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Republic of Azerbaijan are such that they can resolve the existing problems in their ties in a bilateral manner and put them on the right track."

He also discussed the most significant national and international events, highlighting the need for ongoing and close communication between the two adjacent nations.

For his part, the foreign minister of Azerbaijan praised Amir-Abdollahian's "constructive efforts" to ease the tense situation between the two countries.

Bayramov characterized his discussion with the Iranian foreign minister as constructive and expressed optimism that bilateral ties will deepen when a number of unresolved problems are soon resolved.

The North-South Transport Corridor and future collaboration within such regional and global organizations as the Economic Cooperation Organization and the Non-Aligned Movement were additional topics of discussion between the two foreign ministers.

The foreign ministers had stressed in a previous phone call in June that it was crucial for the two neighbors to work out their differences in order to preserve their mutual connections.

Back then, both top diplomats emphasized the need to maintain talks between Tehran and Baku and added that the two nations needed to exchange technical teams to assist in resolving their disputes.

Relations between Tehran and Baku have been worse recently due to an attack on Azerbaijan's embassy in Iran. The attack was classified as a "terrorist" occurrence by Azerbaijan, despite the fact that an investigation revealed the assailant was driven by "personal and family-related problems."

Ilham Aliyev, the president of Azerbaijan, also attributed the incident to the "Iranian establishment."
