Expert: Tehran is well aware that the implementation of the "Zangezur  corridor" means blocking the north of Iran

ArmInfo. Tehran is well aware that the implementation of the Turkish-Azerbaijani "Zangezur Corridor" project means the final blocking of the northern borders of  Iran.  Expert in Iranian studies Armen Vardanyan expressed a similar  opinion to ArmInfo.

"In the event of such fairly large geopolitical changes, the  consequences of which will go beyond not only Armenia, but also the  South Caucasus, Iran will fall into dependence on Turkey and  Azerbaijan.  Meanwhile, today, taking into account the transit  significance of Iran for the tandem, the opposite process is taking  place. In this light, it is clear that the next geopolitical  breakdown of the region clearly does not correspond to the interests  of Tehran," he stressed.

Nevertheless, Vardanyan does not undertake to forecast an unambiguous  military intervention by Iran in the event that Turkey or Azerbaijan  violates the integrity of the Armenian-Iranian border. The reason is  Tehran's rather warm relations with Ankara and Baku, despite all the  problems that periodically arise between them.

But on the other hand, the expert recalled last year's unprecedented  maneuvers of the Iranian army, in particular, the "Islamic  Revolutionary Guard Corps" on the border with Azerbaijan in response  to the threat of an Azerbaijani invasion of the Syunik region of  Armenia, which Baku understood well.

In this light, in the opinion of the Exert, one way or another, but  Iran is determined to defend its own position in favor of the  inviolability of the borders with Armenia. Which, in his opinion,  despite all the objective geopolitical difficulties along this path,  raises the need for new steps by Yerevan to deepen relations with  Tehran to a strategic level.
