Ilham Aliyev: In Iran there are Armenian -speaking schools, but there are no schools where they teach in Azerbaijani. How can this be?

“In Azerbaijan, 340 schools are operating, where teaching is in Russian. There are also 10 schools with teaching in Georgian in Georgia. In Georgia, 116 Azerbaijani -language schools. There are schools in Iran where teaching is in Armenian, but there are no schools where the lessons are taught in Azerbaijani. How can it be? If someone says that this is an intervention in internal affairs, then we absolutely deny such statements. The foreign policy of Azerbaijan is crystal clear – we never intervened and do not interfere in the internal affairs of what kind of internal affairs -lib of the state. ” This was said by President Ilham Aliyev at the International Conference “Along the Middle Corridor: Geopolitics, Security and Economics”.

“We raise the issue of teaching in Azerbaijani in Iranian schools because otherwise Azerbaijanis Iran who speak their native language lose the literary component of the language, the Azerbaijani language remains only at the domestic level,” added President Ilham Aliyev.
