Referring to the fact that the majority of the population of the Republic of Azerbaijan are the followers of Ahl al-Bayt (AS) like Iran and Iraq, Ayatollah Khamenei said this great opportunity to hold glorious mourning ceremonies by the Shiites in Azerbaijan must be seized because they give Azerbaijan Republic and its nation more identity.

US President Donald Trump has refused to confirm whether his government will comply with the agreement and has threatened a harder line on Iran, which the US suspects has been seeking to build a nuclear bomb.

"This is a very important visit [by Putin]".

President Ilham Aliyev also for his part said while he is in Iran he feels that he is in his own home.
