Araghchi announces parts of Iran's initiative for settling Karabakh crisis

Tehran (ISNA) - Iranian deputy Foreign Minister for Political Affairs, Seyyed Abbas Araghchi announced parts of Iran’s initiative for settling the Nagorno-Karabakh crisis and the clashes between the Azerbaijan Republic and Armenia.

Araghchi, as Iran’s special envoy, arrived in Baku on Tuesday night at the head of a delegation and within the framework of a regional tour to promote Tehran’s initiative to settle the Nagorno-Karabakh crisis and the clashes between the Azerbaijan Republic and Armenia.

He is slated to hold talks with Azerbaijani officials during his visit to Baku.

“The trip is part of a periodic visit to those countries in the region that are effective in ending the recent conflict between the Republic of Azerbaijan and Armenia, and the main purpose of the trip is to present the initiative of the Islamic Republic of Iran to settle the conflict and reach lasting peace between the two countries and the region,” Araghchi said of the visit.

“The framework of the initiative has been prepared and will be discussed with the officials of the Republic of Azerbaijan during the visit” he added.

Araghchi stressed, “In several stages, this plan can lead the situation to a lasting peace and end the existing conflict and, of course, the occupation of the territories of the Republic of Azerbaijan.”

He described the end of the occupation of the territories of the Republic of Azerbaijan as an “important element” in Iran's proposed plan and said, "The protection of minority rights and humanitarian rights is another basis for Iran's initiative to end the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict".

The Iranian deputy foreign minister went on to say that ending the conflict and “starting a dialogue with the help of influential countries” with the aim of ensuring peace is another key axis of the Islamic Republic of Iran's initiative.

“We are consulting all these issues with the countries of the region and we hope that the initiative can reach the desired point for implementation,” Araghchi stated.

“We always support the Azerbaijan’s efforts to liberate its occupied cities and areas,” Araghchi said, adding, “The territorial integrity of the Republic of Azerbaijan and other countries in the region and the inviolability of borders is an important and unbreakable principle that must be respected”.

After Baku, Araghchi will go to Moscow, Yerevan and Ankara to explain Iran’s initiative for settling Karabakh crisis.
