Tehran (ISNA) - Spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Saeed Khatibzadeh deplored the violation of a ceasefire between the Republic of Azerbaijan and Armenia, and called on both sides to show restraint and stop attacking civilians.
"The Islamic Republic of Iran deplores the violation of a ceasefire announced amid the recent clashes between the Republic of Azerbaijan and the Republic of Armenia, calls on the two parties to exercise more self-restraint, condemns the missile attacks on the vital infrastructure, the residential areas of cities, and the killing of civilians, and expresses sympathy with the bereaved families," Khatibzadeh said in a statement on Monday in reaction to the violation of ceasefire between Baku and Yerevan in the fighting over the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh region.
"The Islamic Republic of Iran once again calls on the two sides to remain committed to the ceasefire and resume their talks within the framework of the international law, respect for the territorial integrity of each other, and evacuation of the occupied cities," he added.
The spokesman then expressed Iran's readiness to help facilitate negotiations for achieving permanent and sustainable peace and solution in the region.
