Azerbaijan has reportedly released two Iranian truck drivers it detained on September 15, suggesting the bordering countries are trying to reduce tensions and avoid a possible conflict over critical transit routes and the Zionist regime’s presence in the region, Iran Front Page reports.
Iran’s Fars News Agency quoted a western news outlet as saying the release happened a day after Iran’s Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian and his Azeri counterpart Jeyhun Bayramov spoke over the phone in the first direct effort to address tensions that began escalating two weeks ago.
That’s the Goris-to-Kapan highway. Azeri forces detained the two Iranian truck drivers on the highway.
During Tuesday call, Amir Abdollahian urged Bayramov to ease the transit of Iranian trucks and release the two Iranian truck drivers.
