BAKU, April 8. /TASS/. Iran hopes that ceasefire in Nagorno-Karabakh will allow to start negotiations aimed at resolving the conflict, Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif said in an interview with TASS First Deputy Director General Mikhail Gusman.
"We are very happy to see an end to hostilities right now and cessation of hostilities or a ceasefire," Zarif said. "We hope this would be the prelude to serious negotiations in order to resolve this issue. Our region requires cooperation between everybody," he added.
"We believe Armenia as a neighbor and Azerbaijan as a close friend of Iran need to have good relations and we hope, we support all efforts aimed at resolving this problem," the foreign minister noted.
He reminded that after the most recent outbreak of hostilities Iranian President Hassan Rouhani "called both presidents calling for an end to hostilities."
