Iran says won’t accept border changes in region

Iranian Parliament Speaker Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf has confirmed Iran’s stance that it won’t allow changes of borders in the Caucasus region, Mehr News Agency reports.

Qalibaf made the comments at a meeting with his Turkish and Azerbaijani counterparts Mustafa Sentop and Sahiba Gafarova.

“We can have good relations with each other in the regional and global arena, and the closer the regional countries are the better for the region. We must not allow extra-regional countries to interfere here. We will not accept any geopolitical change on the borders [in Caucasian region],” the Iranian Speaker of Parliament said.

Amid Azerbaijan’s ongoing aggression against Armenia, Iran has repeatedly stated that it won’t accept any changes of geographical borders in the region.
