Iran condemns Armenia's attacks on Azerbaijani cities
The Islamic Republic of Iran condemns the missile attacks by Armenia on Azerbaijani cities and settlements and the killing of civilians, the Spokesman of Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Iran, Saeed Khatibzadeh said.
The spokesman emphasized Iran regrets violation of humanitarian ceasefire between Azerbaijan and Armenia.
Following almost two weeks of intensive military confrontations, on Oct. 10 Armenia and Azerbaijan, with Russia's mediation, have agreed on a temporary ceasefire for humanitarian purposes, for exchange of prisoners of war as well as bodies of the dead. Despite the agreement, Armenia continues to violate the ceasefire regime in the direction of occupied Azerbaijani lands.
“The discussions [to solve the Karabakh conflict] must begin within the framework of international law," Khatibzadeh said, adding that territorial integrity must be respected and the occupied territories must be liberated.
Khatibzadeh noted that Tehran also announces its readiness to facilitate these discussions in order to achieve durable peace in the region.
