The relations between Azerbaijan and Iran have been built on ancient history, culture and common religion, said Azerbaijan’s President Ilham Aliyev during his visit to Tehran.

“I am very glad to be on the soil of brotherly Iran again. This is my third visit to Iran over the past three years,” President Aliyev said at a joint press conference with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in Tehran March 5.

"In general, I have met with President Rouhani eight times over the past three years,” President Aliyev said. “This shows that the friendly, fraternal relations between Iran and Azerbaijan are developing successfully and rapidly.”

“Our relations have been built on ancient history, culture and common religion,” he said. “We have established very good cooperation on this solid basis. Our political relations are at a high level and we support each other in all international organizations.”

“I would like to express gratitude to Iran for its position on the Armenia-Azerbaijan Nagorno-Karabakh conflict settlement on the basis of the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Azerbaijan,” the president said. “This position is based on the international principles, laws and justice. Each country's territorial integrity is inviolable."
