On his Friday remarks, Spokesman of the Iranian Armed Forces, Brigadier General Abolfazl Shekarchi, warns Armenia, Azerbaijan of crossing its red lines and hinted they should resolve their issue through dialogue.
While noting that a number of shells have hit the Iranian territory following the military conflicts between Azerbaijan and Armenia he said: “while strengthening the defensive measures at border areas, our country emphasizes that the security of border area and Iranian people is the country’s red line,”
Elsewhere in his remarks he called on Armenia and Azerbaijan to resolve their issues through political settlement and dialogue, be aware of foreign interference, and not to violate Iran’s territorial integrity.
Stating that Iran's good neighborliness and patience with the two countries should not be abused, Shekarchi warned “any hostility against Iranian territory will be responded strongly and properly.”
Azerbaijan and Armenia have resumed military war over the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh region almost three weeks ago. Stray fires have hit the Iranian border areas in the period and Tehran has seriously warned both parties to control their fire.
