Azerbaijan is an independent state and does not interfere in the foreign policy of other country, spokesperson of the Foreign Ministry of Azerbaijan Elkhan Polukhov told Trend .
Official Tehran said that Ashgabat and Baku should close the Israeli embassy in their countries, and the planned visit of the Israeli President Shimon Peres to Baku is disrespect to the Islamic world.
"Statement by the Iranian side is surprising, because when Tehran receives the Azerbaijani delegation at a high level, it also highly receives those who occupied Azerbaijani territories, destroyed historical monuments and kill Muslims," said Polukhov.
