Iran rejects reports on troops deployment in northwest

In a statement on Wednesday, Iran’s embassy in Baku reacted to publishing fake videos and news from unknown and biased sources regarding the deployment of troops and military equipment of the Armed Forces of the Islamic Republic of Iran to the northwestern border regions of the country.
“According to official and reliable information, any military transfers by the armed forces of our country in the mentioned areas are strongly rejected,” it added.
Speaking in an interview with Azerbaijani Press Agency (APA) on Sunday, Deputy Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces for International Cooperation Brigadier General Mohammad Ahadi addressed the allegations.
These are “completely groundless” reports, he said, playing down suggestions that Iran sought to dispatch forces for engagement in a possible war between Azerbaijan and Armenia.
Iran and Azerbaijan enjoy “very good” relations, he said.
On Saturday, the Azerbaijani defense minister received the Iranian delegation and discussed the reconstruction work undertaken in the liberated territories under the leadership of Azerbaijan’s President and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces Ilham Aliyev and the operational situation on the Azerbaijani-Armenian conditional border and in the Karabakh economic region.
During the meeting, the sides also exchanged views about the prospects for the development of military cooperation, regional security, and other issues of common interest.
