Iran urges Azerbaijan to avoid ‘prejudgments,’ politicizing embassy attack
The Iranian Foreign Ministry’s spokesperson called on Azerbaijan to avoid prejudgments and politicized comments about the attack on its embassy in Tehran on January 27, Tasnim reported.
In a statement released on Sunday, Nasser Kanaani reacted to the recent comments made by President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev about the attack on the Azerbaijani embassy in Tehran.
Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of the Munich Security Conference on Saturday, Aliyev had alleged that entities related to the Iranian government were involved in the armed attack.
He said that “normalization of relations with Iran depends on a transparent investigation that will bring the perpetrators [of the attack] to justice."
In response to the comments from Aliyev, the Iranian spokesperson said Azerbaijan had better avoid making prejudgments, politicizing the issue, or spreading propaganda about the attack.
“Offering non-legal interpretations on the incident to the public media is not a constructive measure in the course of pursuing the case legally and judicially,” Kanaani stated.
As mentioned by the Iranian officials several times, the case is going through legal processes, the spokesman added, stating that what has been publicized in this regard is based on the explicit confession made by the assailant.
“Naturally, all dimensions of this bitter incident are being investigated and studied accurately and expertly,” he said.
“As expressed in the diplomatic messages and contacts between the senior political and judicial officials of the two countries, the Islamic Republic of Iran is prepared to provide the Azeri side with the results of investigations. We are confident that the Republic of Azerbaijan’s officials will receive the necessary answers to all ambiguities and questions in their mind in the atmosphere of cooperation and with the adoption of constructive approaches,” Kanaani concluded.
