Azerbaijan , Baku, Sept. 6 / Trend/

The Iranian border guards have recently seized an Arazbarı book by the poet Sona Veliyeva at the Bilasuvar crossing.

The books were supposed to be transported to the Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic through Iran, but border guards refused to transport them, having had doubts over the title and cover.

They were told that the book is named Arazbarı, the name of one of the Azerbaijani mugham. The book depicts the Khudaferin Bridge on the cover, which is a historical and archeological monument for the Azerbaijani people. Despite this, the guards did not allow the books' to be taken past the border and confiscated them on site.
