As you know, starting October 1, Iran has held military exercises in close proximity of the international border with Azerbaijan. Evidently, Iran is worried about liberation of Azerbaijani territories from Armenian occupation, the full restoration of the international borders and territorial integrity of Azerbaijan, a perspective that runs contrary to the foreign policy objectives of Tehran. Without any evidence, Iranian officials speak of "Israel's presence" on the border with Iran. Officials in Tehran are uncomfortable with economic integration and partnerships between Turkey, Pakistan and Israel. That's one of the reasons why Iran’s Hossein Amir-Abdollahian hosted the Armenian foreign minister Ararat Mirzoyan in Tehran on October 5.
Mouthpieces of the Iranian regime have now begun to issue bellicose statements against Azerbaijan. Please send this letter to inform your elected officials about the aggressive stance of the Iranian government and military overtures of the Iranian army. The United States has to stand with its allies.
