Tehran (ISNA) - Chief of staff of the Iranian president, Mahmoud Vaezi expressed pleasure over termination of military conflict between Azerbaijan and Armenia, saying that Iran is ready to help resolve Baku-Yerevan dispute permanently and definitively.

Vaezi made the remarks during a meeting with visiting Azerbaijan deputy Prime Minister Shahin Mustafayev.

"Iran has always believed that differences between counties, especially neighbors ahould be solved through negotiation and that war could never replace political solutions," he stated.

Vaezi said that holding multilateral summits would bring neighboring countries closer to each other and develop constructive and beneficial regional economic cooperation.

"As Azerbaijan's president has emphasized, Iran considers its border with this country as the border of peace and friendship and has always respected the territorial integrity of all countries and called on other countries to respect each other's territorial integrity," he noted.

"It is necessary to avoid any action or movement that causes misunderstanding and creates grounds for strained relations with others," Vaezi reiterated.

Noting that Iran has always been interested to enhance ties with Azerbaijan, he said that the two countries should do their best to accelerate implementation of joint projects such as the construction of railways, dams and power plants in order to pave way for the expansion of interactions and relations.
