Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev said that the normalization of relations between Baku and Tehran is possible after the Iranian authorities are held accountable for all those involved in the terrorist attack against the Azerbaijani embassy.
“You heard about a terrorist act organized against our embassy against the Azerbaijani diplomatic mission. The terrorist did not disarm the terrorist. The police cars came, and the security officers allowed him to break through and kill one security officer and kill one security officer and killing one. to injure two others. And only the courage of one of the security officers, who neutralized the terrorist with his bare hands, allowed to save life, perhaps dozens of others. Since the families of diplomats live in that building, including children, ”Ilham Aliyev said in an interview with Azerbaijani television channels.
The Head of State indicated that Azerbaijan demands an “immediate and transparent investigation. And the fact that immediately after this terrorist terrorist gave an interview to the Iranian media is evidence that he was one of those who were sent to certain groups of the Iranian establishment. One strangeness is that just two days after the attack, he was declared mentally retarded. How did they immediately be able to conduct an examination? This is an attempt to protect him from justice. “
President Aliyev emphasized that “the Iranian government must conduct a transparent investigation. We must be informed about this, the terrorist must be punished. But most importantly, those who sent him, those representatives of the Iranian establishment who committed it, should be held accountable This cruel act is against Azerbaijan. Only after that can we talk about any normalization. “
