Azerbaijani official: Solution of Iranian problem by means that may lead to catastrophic consequences is unacceptable for Azerbaijan
Azerbaijan, Baku, June 12 / Trend K.Zarbaliyeva /
Resolution of the Iranian problem by means that may lead to disastrous consequences and escalation of tension is unacceptable for Azerbaijan, Ruling New Azerbaijan Party (NAP) Deputy Chairman and Executive Secretary Ali Ahmedov told journalists today. He commented on the adoption of a new resolution against Iran by the UN Security Council.
"Being a peace-loving country, Azerbaijan supports the resolution of problematic and contentious issues peacefully through negotiations. Solution of the Iranian problem by other means is unacceptable for Azerbaijan," Ahmedov said.
Ahmedov said Iran and Azerbaijan are not just neighboring countries. The two states share common historical roots, he said.
Ahmedov expressed hope that in making further decisions on the Iranian issue common sense will prevail to avoid tensions in the region.
The U.S. and other Western countries accuse Iran of developing nuclear weapons under the guise of peaceful nuclear energy program. Tehran denies the charges, claiming that its nuclear program is aimed at covering the country's electricity needs.
The UN Security Council on Wednesday adopted another, fourth resolution imposing new sanctions on Iran, who refuses to give up its uranium enrichment activities. 12 members of the Security Council supported the document, Turkey and Brazil voted against, Lebanon abstained.
This is the fourth resolution adopted by the UN Security Council in connection with Tehran's unwillingness to comply with international demands regarding its nuclear program
