Caucasus (, - Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian in a telephone conversation with his Azerbaijani counterpart Jeyhun Bayramov emphasized Iran's disagreement with the presence of foreign states in the region. This is reported by the Iranian news agency IRNA.

Amir Abdollahian had a telephone conversation with Bayramov and discussed important political and economic issues of mutual interest to the parties.

Touching upon the readiness of the Islamic Republic of Iran to expand transit and transport cooperation between the two countries, the head of Iranian diplomacy noted that cooperation in this area must be intensified, and Tehran is ready to increase trade between the two countries.

Emphasizing Iran's disagreement with the presence of foreign states in the region, he noted that the problems can be solved by the countries of the region themselves. It should be assumed that the head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Islamic Republic had in mind the intensified cooperation between Azerbaijan and Israel. Earlier, Baku and Tel Aviv decided to open their embassies.

Bayramov, for his part, stressed the importance of cooperation with the Islamic Republic of Iran and expressed his government's interest in holding a joint economic commission of the two countries in early 2023 and developing trade and economic relations between the two states.

As previously reported, a senior Iranian military officer, Major General Gholamali Rashid, said that the power of Iran's armed forces is "destructive for the enemy" and warned that any country that cooperates with the "Zionist regime" to threaten Iran's national security , will become a target for the country's armed forces.

Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari, deputy commander of the Iranian army, said the massive military exercises would remind the states of the region of Iran's existing capabilities and that they do not need any foreign powers to ensure security in the region.

"The presence of extra-regional countries and warmongers has never brought anything but insecurity, war and occupation to the West Asian region."

He said that non-regional countries, especially the US and UK, should leave the region so that regional countries can establish stability and peace.
