Assistant to the President of Azerbaijan, Head of the Foreign Policy Department of the Presidential Administration Hikmet Hajiyev met with the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Iran to Azerbaijan Sayyid Abbas Mousavi.

Ambassador Mousavi and Hikmet Hajiyev wrote about this on their respective Twitter pages.

'Thanks Ambassador Mousavi for paying visit to us. We have had indeed fruitful discussions on the issues on our bilateral agenda and reviewed ways forward,' the aide to the President of Azerbaijan stressed.

'Pleased to meet with H.E. Hikmet Hajiyev Assistant to the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan. We discussed the latest developments of our bilateral ties and issues of common concern and interest,' wrote the ambassador.

It should be noted that in recent days there has been tension between Iran and Azerbaijan, caused by the unauthorised delivery of caravans of cargo of 'unknown content' from Iran through the territory of Armenia to the zone of responsibility of Russian peacekeepers in Karabakh. Delivery of goods is carried out without the permission of the government of Azerbaijan. However, the Azerbaijani government has established a checkpoint of the Azerbaijani Interior Ministry and a customs point on the section of the Goris-Kafan highway controlled by Azerbaijan, according to the administrative maps of the USSR. Azerbaijani customs officials collect road duties from Iranian trucks in accordance with the country's legislation.
