Tehran, Baku Enjoy Historic Relations: Larijani

Talking to reporters upon his arrival at Baku's Heydar Aliyev International Airport, he said that before the collapse of the former Soviet Union in early 1990s, Iranian and Azeri nations did not have close relationships as they do now.

'However, since the independence of the Republic of Azerbaijan and after the collapse of the former Soviet Union in December 1991, the Islamic Republic of Iran was the first country to officially recognize the establishment of the newly-independent Republic of Azerbaijan,' Larijani added.

Referring to the fact that Tehran-Baku relations have been improving during former Azeri President Heydar Aliyev's era, Majlis speaker noted that during President Ilham Aliyev's tenure, the two countries have considerably improved their bilateral ties.

Larijani during his two-day visit to Azerbaijan will meet with high-ranking Azeri officials, attend a press conference and also visit the historic Azeri city of Ganjeh.
