Azerbaijan welcomes the Iranian nuclear deal, the ambassador said, noting it supports the lowering of tensions. “The full details of this deal are somewhat obscure and there are different interpretations—optimistic and pessimistic ones. There are good intentions and good motives, but I think the [negotiators] should have considered all the interests of their Western allies in the region. Our biggest concern has always been that there was the possibility of an open, military confrontation on Iranian soil, which borders our soil. This agreement to a high extent excludes a military confrontation. It is important now to make sure all sides observe the agreement. What the members of the P5+1 tell us is that this is the best deal they can get. We were not really consulted on the deal during the negotiations. We want to believe there was at least some understanding of the need for safeguards and security in the region, but now we can just hope,” Suleymanov said.

There is no military solution, the ambassador said, adding that is why when the international sanctions were imposed on Iran, Azerbaijan observed them. “We understood then that sanctions were the only peaceful alternative. Now the agreement appears to be the only alternative to a military solution, so we hope that all sides will observe it,” said the ambassador.
