Larijani: Iran Relies on Its People, Democracy

"From this point of view, there can be some controversies every time," Larijani said in an interview with Trend news agency of Azerbaijan.

He was commenting on criticism of the Iranian parliament to address certain public officials.

"In general, differences arise in various fields in order to specialize. Thus, the parliament approves any provision to develop the industrial sphere, makes a decision how to assist the development of agriculture or identify ways how to solve some problems existing in the economy," he said in the interview conducted on the eve of his 3-day state visit to neighboring Azerbaijan Republic.

Larijani said the Parliament, as a controlling body, sees the flaws and shortcomings in some executive agencies and wants to solve them. "The presence of shortages related to violations of law in some government agencies is natural. Maybe, the executive authority has not fulfilled some law. In this case, the parliament is obliged to remind them about it and make corrections. Our views on the issues have the same goal - to make changes and corrections," he stressed.

"The control, criticism and comments serve one purpose - to raise the country to the "peak of development," he said.

Talking to reporters upon his arrival at Baku's Heydar Aliyev International Airport Thursday, Larijani said the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Republic of Azerbaijan have historic ties.

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.
