Iran says ready to help settle Karabakh dispute

Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast says if Azerbaijan and Armenia want, Iran is ready to offer a solution to the Karabakh dispute, MNA reported.

Mehmanparast made the remarks during a press conference which was held in Kazan, the capital city of the Republic of Tatarstan, late on Thursday.

He said, "Border disputes usually occur between neighboring countries."

However, he added, "Extra-regional countries seek to exploit disputes in order to interfere in regional issues."

He went on to say that Iran supports the continuation of talks and consultations on the issue and is ready to help resolve the territorial dispute between Baku and Yerevan.

He also said Western countries are using media as a tool to distort the truth about Muslim nations.

During a meeting with the chairman of the State Council of the Republic of Tatarstan, Farid Mukhametshin, on Friday, Mehmanparast said Iran and the Russian Federation can play a substantial role in preserving the balance of power in the region.

At the current world situation, in which major developments are occurring, close ties and cooperation between friendly countries is very vital, he stated.

Iran and Tatarstan should utilize their great potential to promote mutual cooperation, he said, adding media outlets should also help the potential be recognized.
