The commander of the Ground Forces of the Army of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Kiomers Heydari, voiced slanderous and slanderous opinions about Azerbaijan.
APA was informed about this by the Ministry of Defense.
It was noted that K. Heydari in his absurd ideas claims that there are "Zionist" forces in Azerbaijan and that Azerbaijan used ISIS terrorists brought from Syria during the 44-day Patriotic War and that they are still in the country's territory.
At the same time, he says that changes on the border with Armenia will not be allowed by Iran.
First of all, we state that the accusation of the Iranian side about the presence of any foreign forces in the territory of the Republic of Azerbaijan is groundless and completely unacceptable.
In general, there are no foreign elements in the territory of the Republic of Azerbaijan.
We would like to remind K. Heydari that Armenia occupied the territories of Azerbaijan for 30 years.
As a result of this military aggression, the 137-kilometer section of the Azerbaijan-Iran state border was also occupied.
However, the Iranian side has never made an incriminating statement regarding Armenia.
On the contrary, during this period, the Iranian-Armenian brotherhood became stronger.
Today, it is no secret to anyone that Armenia has two main allies in the world, one of them is France, and the second is Iran.
The Republic of Azerbaijan supports the territorial integrity of all countries and does not interfere in the internal affairs of states.
In response to the accusation that Azerbaijan allegedly used ISIS terrorists in the 44-day Patriotic War, we inform you that the glorious Azerbaijani army single-handedly freed our lands from occupation and wrote a victory sign.
This claim is nothing more than an absurd accusation and slander.
It is ironic and ridiculous that this accusation was made by a high-ranking Chinese military officer of a state that supports terrorism and whose name is known for committing terrorist acts in various countries around the world.
