YEREVAN.- Iranian Ambassador to Armenia commented on the recent statements made by Ayatollah Sayyid Mohammed Bokiri Kherrozi. He pledged to return “the lands of Tajikistan, Armenia and Azerbaijan to Iran”, if he is elected a president.
Speaking about the mentioned remark, Ambassador Mohammad Raiesi said Kherrozi is not an official but religious figure, thus he cannot express the position of the state.
“Iran is a free country. Everyone can say whatever he wants. Iran has no such plans. We respect territorial integrity of the states. Iran’s official policy is voiced by president and foreign minister,” Ambassador emphasized.
