Iran believes Armenia-Azerbaijan tensions won’t escalate into war

Iran believes that the Armenia-Azerbaijan tensions won’t escalate into war, Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Ashtiani has said.

“We believe that no war will break out in the region,” Tasnim news agency quoted the Iranian Defense Minister as saying.

Highlighting Iran’s “explicit” stances on the tensions between Armenia and Azerbaijan, the Iranian defense minister said, “We won’t approve of any changes in the borders. The process we are observing indicates that no specific happening will occur.”

On September 7, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan warned that Azerbaijan continues amassing troops and military equipment along the Armenian-Azerbaijani border and around Nagorno-Karabakh.
