Baku Dismisses UK Media Report on Azerbaijan Allowing Israel to Attack Iran

TEHRAN (FNA)- Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry Spokesman Elman Abdullayev
categorically dismissed a recent media report which claimed Baku has allowed
Israel to use Azerbaijan's soil for attacking Iran.

The British newspaper Sunday Times in a recent report had quoted its sources
as saying that "if the war started, Israel would strike missile launching
sites of Iran with its drones deployed in Azerbaijan".

"We do not allow anyone to use our soil for a possible attack on Iran,"
Abdullayev told reporters in Baku.

He said that the Sunday Times report is absolutely absurd because
"Azerbaijan always pursues good neighborly relations and attaches importance
to the relations with its neighbors".

"Azerbaijan's position has been voiced several times. Baku will never allow
using its territory against neighbors. Azerbaijan maintains good
neighborliness and will never take such a step," Abdullayev added. "This is
our position."

Reuters news agency and the Foreign Policy magazine had also earlier claimed
that Israel would use Azerbaijan's soil for possible attacks on Iran which
was rejected by Azeri officials, including head of Political and Social
Bureau of Azerbaijan's President's Office Ali Hassanov.
