The Azerbaijani Parliament has strongly condemned the terrorist
act against the country's embassy in Iran committed on January 27,
2023, Azernews reports.
The Parliament noted that the responsibility for the act lies on
Iran since in accordance with the Vienna Convention of 1961, the
host country is obliged to ensure the security of diplomatic
missions and their employees.
'Unfortunately, Iran has been conducting smear campaigns against
Azerbaijan in recent days. In this regard, taking measures to
prevent possible attacks on Azerbaijan's diplomatic missions should
have been the focal point of Iranian law enforcement agencies. As
it is, the possibility of an armed person's free penetration into
the administrative building of the embassy, where a special
security regime operates, raises serious questions. We consider
Iran's statements about the reasons for this brutal attack to be
unsatisfactory. We demand a thorough investigation of the incident,
the punishment of all those responsible, including those behind
this bloody criminal act, as well as the disclosure of the
circumstances that resulted in the terrorist act. The customers,
instigators, and perpetrators of the terrorist act against the
Azerbaijani embassy in Iran should also know that under no
circumstances will they be able to carry out their dirty
intentions. We extend our deepest condolences to the family and
relatives of the victim, as well as wish a speedy recovery to the
wounded,' the parliament said.
