We would like to remind K. Heydari that Armenia had been keeping the Azerbaijani lands under occupation for 30 years, it was stated in the Ministry of Defense's response to the defamatory and slanderous opinions of Kioumars Heydari, Commander of the Ground Forces of the Army of the Islamic Republic of Iran, APA reports.
"As a result of this military aggression, a 132-kilometer section of the Azerbaijani-Iranian state border had also been occupied. However, the Iranian side had never made compromising statements about Armenia. On the contrary, the Iranian-Armenian brotherhood strengthened during this period. And today it is no secret to anyone that if Armenia has two main allies in the world, France is one of them, and Iran is the other," the Ministry said.
