Iran received a note of protest from Azerbaijan
The reason for the note of protest was the flight of an Iranian military aircraft near the borders of Azerbaijan, the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry and Defense Ministry said in a joint statement.
The Iranian ambassador to Azerbaijan was summoned to the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry, where he was given a note of protest in connection with the flight of an Iranian military aircraft near the borders of Azerbaijan. This was reported by Interfax-Azerbaijan.
It is reported that official Baku regards Tehran’s actions as a provocation.
“On March 11, 2023, a military aircraft belonging to the Islamic Republic of Iran continuously flew along the Azerbaijani-Iranian state border in the direction from the Zangilan region to the Bilasuvar region and back from 09:44 to 10:26. The aircraft flew at a distance of 3-5 km from the state borders, and in some cases even over the state border,” the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry and Defense Ministry said in a joint statement.
It is noted that such an approach of an Iranian military aircraft to the state border of Azerbaijan and a flight over the border line threatens the security of civil aviation and worsens relations between the countries.
“We strongly condemn the Iranian side for such a provocative step, we urge them to give appropriate explanations and refrain from such provocative steps in the future,” the statement says.
Earlier it was reported that Iran and Saudi Arabia are resuming diplomatic relations after seven years.
