TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran's newly-appointed Ambassador to Baku Mohammad Baqer Bahrami said on Wednesday that Iran-Azerbaijan relations are satisfactory, adding that there are good potentials to develop bilateral ties.
"The ties between the two countries are satisfactory at the moment. We are responsible for maintaining and diversifying these ties. There is a good potential to enhance ties," Bahrami, who started his work as new Iranian ambassador in Baku on Monday, said in an interview with trend news published on Wednesday.
Reminding recent visit to Tehran by Azerbaijan's President Ilham Aliyev in March, Bahrami underlined that Iranian and Azeri presidents are interested in developing ties between the two countries.
"There is a good potential to develop ties. Iranian and Azerbaijani people share much in common including faith and the two states that are willing to further enhance strong ties," the Iranian ambassador noted.
Regarding his programs for the future of the two neighboring countries, he noted, "I hope the programs I have designed will contribute to improvement envisaged by the presidents of the two countries. I am not satisfied that much with the current situation."
"I worked out my own strategy and program three months before I came to Azerbaijan. I will begin to realize them after a certain period of time. We do not want to make false promises but to fulfill our words in practice," Bahrami went on saying.
