Iran warns Nagorno-Karabakh conflict parties

Tehran (IP) - Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh on Thursday night warned the parties of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict about firing bullets and rockets into Iranian soil.

Iran Press/Iran news: Saeed Khatibzadeh in response to several rockets hitting the border areas of Iran, said, "If such shelling continues, the Islamic Republic of Iran will not remain indifferent."

Emphasizing that such inattention is not acceptable at all, Khatibzadeh stated that maintaining the security and tranquillity of Iranian citizens living in the border areas is the red line of the Armed Forces of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

In the end, the spokesman denied the rumors about retaliation by the border forces of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Ali Amiri Rad, the Governor of Khodaafarin city in East Azarbaijan province, northwest of Iran, announced a few hours ago that today, during the clashes between Armenian and Azerbaijani forces in the Nagorno-Karabakh region, 10 war rockets hit the villages of Iran.

The conflict between the Republic of Azerbaijan and Armenia over the Nagorno-Karabakh region, which belongs to the Republic of Azerbaijan, began in 1988. It escalated into a military war in 1992.
