"This is not the first time that Iranian trucks have entered the Karabakh region illegally. These trucks went there regularly during the occupation. We had news. But, of course, we did not have the exact information as we have now," Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev said in an interview with Anadolu Agency.
"Taking this into account, we expressed our dissatisfaction with the Iranian side through various channels. But this process remained unchanged. After the end of the war, the Lachin corridor is already in front of our eyes. The distance from our military positions to the roads to Khankendi is probably 5-6 meters. We have sufficient technical capabilities along the Lachin corridor, including around Shusha and elsewhere. There are cameras. We use satellites and drones.
"We saw again that these trucks continued to go there after the war. In this case, I instructed the staff of the Presidential Administration to talk to the Iranian ambassador to Azerbaijan. We do not want to formalize it. They must speak in a friendly manner and say that it must end. This is disrespectful to us, to the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan," the head of state noted.
