Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said the ongoing conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan over the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh region has no military solution.
Rouhani made the remarks in a Thursday phone call with his Turkish counterpart, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, during which the Iranian side highlighted the necessity of maintaining the security of Iran’s border areas close to Azeri and Armenian territories.
''Our position on this issue is totally clear and we believe that war is not a solution and (the ongoing crisis) must be resolved through dialogue and negotiations,'' Rouhani told Erdogan.
