The ambassador underlined that it is an irrefutable fact that Armenians living all over the world, as well as in Iran have hand in the occupation of Azerbaijani territories.
“Armenians living all over the world had hand in the aggression against us, in order to establish an Armenian state in Azerbaijani territories. Historical sources prove it. Thousands of Armenian families were resettled in Azerbaijan after Turkmanchay treaty, and after Azerbaijan was occupied by Soviet Russia. So, Armenian state was established in Azerbaijani territories. Armenians commit acts against Azerbaijan. And it is irrefutable that the Armenians living in Iran also have hand in it,” he said.
Abbasali Hasanov also noted that Iranian Armenians participated in the chess competition held in Khankandi several years ago.
“Two or three years ago, when chess competition was held in Khankandi, we asked Iranian officials whether their citizens participated in the competition. State officials persistently refuted the fact, but when the names of the participants were publicized, it became known that several Iranian Armenians participated in the competition,” he said.
The ambassador said that he had been in Iranian Foreign Ministry several times and demanded investigation of the problem.
APA reported quoting diplomatic sources that Armenian religious organizations operating in Iran deceive Iranian citizens of Armenian origin and send them to serve in “Nagorno Karabakh Republic” armed forces in the territories under the control of separatist regime. According to the information, Iranian servicemen detained two Armenian trespassers in the region bordering on the occupied Azerbaijani territories. They were defined to be Iranian citizens, Isfahan Armenians. One of the detainees Mikhak Teymurian said he went to Nagorno Karabakh by propaganda of religious center of Iranian Armenians Khalifagari-ye-Erameni. /APA/
