Interior Minister Stresses High Security along Iranian Borders
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran's border areas enjoy sustainable security despite threats and efforts to undermine the country's security, Iranian Interior Minister Abdolreza Rahmani Fazli underlined.
"Despite certain threats and sabotage efforts, the country’s borders are in sustainable security today," Rahmani Fazli said in a meeting with provincial officials from Iran's Northern province of Ardebil.
He added that the security in the country’s borders is achieved thanks to the Iranian border guards’ intensive efforts, their proper planning, and performance.
The Iranian minister further pointed to the latest developments in Iran-Azerbaijan borders, and announced that the two countries' border crossings have been reopened after the two sides resolved the existing problems.
“The reopening of Iran-Azerbaijan borders took place a few days ago after certain border problems were resolved,” said the interior minister.
Following Azerbaijan's move in closing its joint Poldasht International Border with Iran on pretext of an alleged shooting incidence, Iran had on November 8 strongly denounced the move. Later, Jolfa and Bilesavar borders were closed.
The development came after days of Iranian officials’ useless efforts to reverse undiplomatic move.
