The minister noted that Iran and Azerbaijan cooperate in all fields. He underlined that the two countries` security services exchange information on the fight against international terrorism, organized crime and illegal drug trafficking.

Mahmoud Alavi highlighted the importance of the meetings held in Azerbaijan. The minister noted that as Iran and Azerbaijan are bound together by ties of history, religion and culture, the two countries should pay attention to security issues. “Some forces don`t welcome good relations between Iran and Azerbaijan.
