Stating that the northwestern borders of Iran have not changed, Foreign Ministry Spokesman said that neither the border has been changed nor Iran is accepting any change outside the announced contents in the region. Speaking in his weekly press briefing on Monday, Saeed Khatibzadeh said, "Last week we faced a series of baseless media claims that there will be a change in the map of the region after the Nagorno-Karabakh crisis. Some fake maps were published in this regard that were media mischief."
"The Islamic Republic of Iran has welcomed any permanent solution to the crisis and has sought to resolve it peacefully over the past three decades. Any action that contributes to this process will be welcomed by Iran," he added.
"No changes have been made to the map, and we hope that there will be no more Takfiri and terrorist groups in the Nagorno-Karabakh region," he said, adding, "A peaceful settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh crisis will be in the interest of the whole region."
Referring to Iran's role in resolving the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict and sending Turkish peacekeepers to the region, he said, "The Islamic Republic of Iran has played and will continue to play a strategic role in all equations in the region. The only permanent solution to this crisis is to consider the sovereignty of countries and respect for borders, and we welcome anything that helps in this direction."
