Speaking at a press conference held on February 8, the Iranian ambassador to Azerbaijan Javad Jahangirzadeh expressed his hope for the further development of military cooperation between the two countries, Trend reports.
According to Jahangirzadeh, Iran considers Azerbaijan as a friendly and brotherly country, therefore the military cooperation is at a high level.
Jahangirzadeh said that the visit of the Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Hossein Bagheri to Azerbaijan for the military cooperation between Azerbaijan and Iran can be especially highlighted.
The Iranian ambassador added that General Bagheri rarely makes visits to foreign countries, so far having been to Turkey, Pakistan and Russia.
“The 4th visit of Chief of the General Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces was precisely to Azerbaijan,” he said, adding that this is a clear marker of the military cooperation between the two countries being at a high level.
The Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Hossein Bagheri visited Azerbaijan on January 16-17.
