The Caucasus Muslims Office (CMO) has strongly condemned the
attack on Azerbaijani Embassy in Iran in a statement, Azernews
'The brutal terrorist attack on Azerbaijan's embassy is
unequivocally directed against our country and runs counter to
international law. We extend deep condolences to the family of
Senior Lieutenant Orkhan Asqarov, who died while ensuring the
embassy's security, and wish a speedy recovery to the embassy
security guard who suffered during the bloody attack,' the office
According to the statement, following international law and
diplomatic law, Iran is responsible for the attack on the embassy.
This infringed upon the principle of the inviolability of
diplomatic missions. In accordance with the Vienna Convention of
1961, the host country is obliged to ensure the security of
diplomatic missions and their employees.
'As a religious institution, we declare that the country
supplying military aid to Armenia, which transformed mosques into
pigsties, committed the Khojaly genocide, forced a million
Azerbaijanis to leave their native lands – is a direct threat to
the national interests of Azerbaijan. Unlike other Muslim
countries, which didn't establish political and diplomatic
relations with the aggressor-country and made statements condemning
the occupation, Iran further enhanced all-inclusive cooperation
with Armenia, thus ignoring the resolutions adopted within the
Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC),' the Office noted.
The forces behind the provocations against Azerbaijan should
know that the Azerbaijani Muslims condemn incitement and other
actions directed against our country.
The attack on the Azerbaijani embassy is an unacceptable
provocation, and Azerbaijan demands that the Iranian government
take the necessary measures and urgently punish perpetrators of
this crime, the Office said.
