Азербайджан дал ноту Ирану в связи с провокацией в районе госграницы

Iranian Ambassador Seyid Abbas Musevi was called on Saturday to the Azerbaijan Foreign Ministry in connection with the provocation in the area of ​​the state border of the two countries.

A joint statement on this subject was made by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan.

According to the report, March 11, 2023, a military aircraft belonging to the Islamic Republic of Iran, from 09:44 to 10:26 he continuously flew along the Azerbaijani-Iranian state border, from the direction of the Zangilalan district in the direction of the Bilasuvar district, and back. P>

The plane flew 3-5 km from the state border between the two countries, and in some cases over the state border.

Such an approximation of the military aircraft of the Islamic Republic of Iran to the state border between the two countries and the flight over the border line, contrary to the international practice adopted at the international level, the neighboring state about the approach of military aircraft to the state border, pose a threat to civil aviation security and serve as a further exacerbation of bilateral Relations.

more than a half -hour flight of a military aircraft near the territories of Azerbaijan, which was released from the occupation, is a provocation and unfriendly behavior in relation to Azerbaijan. We want to remind you that the Iranian side and last year conducted large -scale military exercises along the Araz River near borders with Azerbaijan.

We decisively condemn the Iranian side for such a provocative step, urge to give appropriate explanations and refrain from such provocative actions in the future.

On March 11, the Ambassador of the Islamic Republic of Iran to the Azerbaijan Republic, Seyid Abbas Musavi, was called to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Azerbaijan Republic and he was awarded the corresponding note of protest.
