NO ONE can talk about OUR beloved Azerbaijan: Iran's Zarif

Tehran (IP) - The Foreign Minister of the Islamic Republic of Iran said in response to the comments by the Turkish President Erdogan that nobody can talk malice about the Azerbaijan Republic.

Iran PressIran News: In a Friday tweet, Mohammad Javad Zarif wrote: "Pres. Erdogan was not informed that what he ill-recited in Baku refers to the forcible separation of areas north of Aras from Iranian motherland".

"Didn't he realize that he was undermining the sovereignty of the Republic of Azerbaijan? NO ONE can talk about OUR beloved Azerbaijan," he noted.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan travelled to the Azerbaijan Republic on Thursday to take part in a military parade ceremony held on the occasion of the liberation of the Armenian-occupied zones.

At the ceremony, which was also attended by Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev, Erdogan recited a line of a separatist poem about the Aras River on the Iranian-Azerbaijani border.
