Iran, Azerbaijan to strengthen co-op despite US sanctions Political and military events
Iran and Azerbaijan will strengthen bilateral cooperation despite the present difficult situation on the international arena and the expected US sanctions against Iran, Dr. Ahmad Alireza Beigi, a representative of the parliament of Iran, told Trend.
"Even taking into account the recent events with the US, it is still possible for both Azerbaijan and Iran to strengthen ties. The two countries are engaged in cooperation for a long time, with a common culture and interests, and our cooperation will undoubtedly develop in future. Both countries will continue the expansion of friendly relations, contributing to the regional stability," Beigi said.
He added that the two countries will experience no problems in trade and other spheres of cooperation after the imposition of new US sanctions on Iran.
"Even if nuclear deal had no benefit for us, it overturned the US scenario about Iran. Iran is a powerful country, and the US moves mark nothing more than their defeat from Iran in the Middle East. The world recognizes Iran as a democratic country, which has goodwill in international affairs," Beigi said.
