Rouhani to Erdogan: War is no solution to Karabakh conflict

PanARMENIAN.Net - Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has told his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan that the ongoing conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh has no military solution, Tasnim News Agency reports.

Rouhani made the remarks in a Thursday, October 22 phone call with Erdogan, during which the Iranian side highlighted the necessity of maintaining the security of Iran’s border areas close to Azeri and Armenian territories.

“Our position on this issue is totally clear and we believe that war is not a solution and (the ongoing crisis) must be resolved through dialogue and negotiations,” Rouhani told Erdogan.

At least two Israeli-made drones belonging to the Azerbaijani army have earlier crashed in Iran.

Azerbaijan, with help from Turkey and Syrian and Libyan mercenaries deployed by Ankara, started a war against Karabakh (Artsakh) in the morning of September 27. The Armenian side has reported deaths and injuries both among the civilian population and the military. Foreign and local journalists too have been injured in Azeri shelling of towns and villages.
