We strongly condemn the treacherous terrorist attack against the Embassy of the Republic of Azerbaijan in the Islamic Republic of Iran.

APA reports that this was stated in the statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Azerbaijan.

"As the country where the embassy is located, the Iranian side had to fulfill its obligation to ensure the protection of the embassy and the safety of its employees arising from the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations.

There have been attempts to threaten our diplomatic mission in Iran before, and measures to prevent such situations and to ensure the security of our diplomatic missions have been continuously raised before Iran.

Unfortunately, the last bloody terrorist attack demonstrates the serious consequences of not showing proper sensitivity to our urgent appeals in this direction.

We are of the opinion that the recent anti-Azerbaijani campaign against our country in Iran has encouraged such attacks against our diplomatic mission.

We strongly demand that the perpetrators of the mentioned terrorist attack by Iran, as well as those who ordered this bloody act, be identified as soon as possible and punished in the most severe manner.

The Azerbaijani side will use all the opportunities provided by the relevant international mechanisms to ensure that the culprits are identified and receive a decent punishment.

In the situation that occurred as a result of the terrorist attack, it is planned to take appropriate measures to evacuate the employees of the embassy and their family members," the statement said.
