Iran has condemned recent comments by Israel's foreign minister regarding an agreement with Azerbaijan on forming a united front against Iran.

In response to remarks made by Israeli Foreign Minister Eli Cohen during a meeting with his Azerbaijani counterpart Jeyhun Bayramov in Jerusalem, Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Nasser Kanaani stated that such statements are proof of Israel's intentions to turn Azerbaijan's soil into an arena for threatening Iran's national security.

Kanaani also highlighted the unbreakable historical and religious links between the Iranian and Azerbaijani peoples, and called on the Azerbaijani government to avoid the trap.
