Deputy FM: Iran's law enforcement agencies should take measures due to disrespect to Azerbaijan's state symbols
Azerbaijan, Baku, March 2, Trend , A. Huseynbala
The Azerbaijani Deputy Foreign Minister said Iran's law enforcement agencies should take measures in connection with disrespect shown to state symbols on the building of the Azerbaijani embassy in Iran.
"We expect Iran's law enforcement agencies to undertake corresponding measures in connection with the disrespect towards our state symbols and throwing eggs tot the embassy's building," Deputy Foreign Minister Vagif Sadykhov told reporters on Tuesday.
As a result of action staged in front of the building of the Azerbaijani embassy in Iran, the state symbols of Azerbaijan were insulted, and the Embassy's building was pelted with eggs.
According to Sadykhov, conduct of a propagandistic campaign in foreign countries in various forms is a natural phenomenon.
"We also conduct propagandistic campaigns, and such campaigns are conducted against us as well. We do not see anything unusual in this. As to forms of propaganda, and conduct of demonstrations or pickets in a certain form, this is to be determined by local power bodies. If such occurs in conformity with the law, this, of course, is given permission, but if counters the law, definite restrictions are imposed. That's exactly how the things in Azerbaijan are," Sadykhov said.
In his opinion, such incidents should not be considered an extraordinary phenomenon.
"This is a common phenomenon. As to demands voiced at such actions, this is the reflection of organizers' thoughts. We treat this with tolerance. But of course, we make definite conclusions," Sadykhov noted.
