Iran has strongly objected to the friendship between Azerbaijan and Israel. The Iranian Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday that it has serious concerns about Israel’s presence in the Caucasus. Some media reports have even claimed that Iran has closed its airspace for Azerbaijani military aircraft. Iran’s major concern is the presence of Israeli weapons near its border.

Iran said – we do not accept the presence of Zionists
Iranian Foreign Minister Hussein Amir-Abdullahian said in Moscow that we will certainly not tolerate geopolitical changes and map changes in the Caucasus. We have serious concerns about the presence of terrorists and Zionists (supporters of the Jewish state) in the region. Iran has already warned about Israel’s presence.

Why did tension increase in Iran and Azerbaijan?
There are many reasons for increasing tension in Iran and Azerbaijan. The first is that Azerbaijan recently conducted military exercises with Pakistan and Turkey near the Iran border. Second, Azerbaijan closed the road for Iranian trucks going to Armenia. Not only this, Azerbaijan also detained some Iranian truck drivers. Third, Iran is also irritated by the growing friendship between Israel and Azerbaijan.

In response, Iran has also deployed heavy weapons along the border with Azerbaijan. The Iranian army has also started military exercises in this area. Before the start of the same military exercise, Iranian Foreign Minister Amir-Abdullahian told his Azerbaijani counterpart that Iran would not tolerate Israel’s presence or activity along our borders. He also vowed to take any necessary action.

Iran and Azerbaijan are not friends despite Shia population
Iran and Azerbaijan have a border of 700 km. Azerbaijan’s majority population is Shia, yet its relations with Iran are not good. At the same time, the majority of Armenia’s population is Christian. Nevertheless, relations between Armenia and Iran are quite good. During the Corona epidemic, a large number of people from Iran came to Armenia to get the vaccine.
