The Azerbaijani Embassy to Iran has applied to the Tehran City Hall to change the names of the recently renamed streets in the capital. The application particularly refers to the names of Shushi, Badkube, Nardaran, Ganja streets.
According to the deputy chairman of the Tehran City Council, the Mayor's office told the Azerbaijani Embassy that such questions should be addressed to the Foreign Ministry, and not directly to the Mayor's office. “The Foreign Ministry should study the issue, and if approved, negotiations will begin with the city council,” the official said.
On November 23, the Tehran City Council decided to rename 38 streets. The choice of the old Persian name of Baku - Badkuba, Armenian Shushi - and a number of other names were not accepted unequivocally in Azerbaijan.
