Iran wants to keep Israel and Turkey out of Azerbaijan and best way to do that is to support Armenia.

Also, Azerbaijan/Turkey/Israel probably want to try taking back Iranian Azerbaijan to test Iranian defenses, but they will be fools to do it because they will get crushed by Iran if they try it.
Iran can give Azerbaijan the support it needs to return Muslim territory in Nagorno-Karabakh, then separatist demands will decrease.

However if Iran keeps playing these games against Turkey and Azerbaijan (and also Afghanistan and Pakistan,) it will backfire.

All of Iran's neighbors have problems with Iranian meddling, Iran is creating an alliance against itself in its geopolitical space. US installed pro-Iran governments of Afghanistan and Iraq are losing relevance to anti-Iranian groups.

Interestingly, Saudis seem to be backing Armenia as well. Israel seems to be backing Azerbaijan.
Saudi is behaving like mini-India and basing its daily routine around paranoid turcophobia. Israel has always been Azerbaijan's ally and is remaining loyal - why shouldn't it?

Re: OP, there is a historical element too. Not sure precisely, but Ottomans and Persia-backed Turkics fought over this region centuries ago. Iran seems to be honouring historical motivations to resist Ankara/Istanbul in this particular region.

Face-saving only.
Can you show how the Iranian peace initiative to end the 1990's Nagorno-Karabakh conflict was insincere or lacked seriousness? For all intents and purposes, this was a classical mediation effort which followed the usual protocols and was backed by genuine political will.

The Tehran Communiqué, also known as the Joint statement of the heads of state in Tehran is the joint communiqué mediated by Iranian President, Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani and signed by the acting President of Azerbaijan, Yagub Mammadov and President of Armenia, Levon Ter-Petrossian on May 7, 1992 with an intention to end the four-year-long hostilities between Armenia and Azerbaijan over the Nagorno-Karabakh region, a former autonomous oblast of the Azerbaijan SSR.[1][2][3]


Azeri government records show full Iranian involvement in the funding of Armenian militias and terrorist groups, many of whom terrorized Azeri civilians in the past.
The one prominent terrorist organization staffed by Armenians, ASALA, is not known for conductiong attacks on Azarbajan (it targets Turkish assets essentially).

Governments tend to make lots of accusations against each other, not all of which are necessarily accurate. However even if it were true that Iran extended some assistance to the Armenian government (rather than militias) at some point, here's a quick reminder as to the timeline of events:

1) Iran started out by backing the Azarbaijani side, Iranian volunteers joined Azari forces and some of them even gave their lives for Azarbaijan.

Here's an Iran-based internet portal (officially authorized by the Iranian government) that supports Azarbaijan:
http://qafqaz.ir/fa/category/news/

Even wikipedia can no longer cover it up. It's Persian language version has this to say about Iran's help to Azarbaijan Republic (translated with Google):

In his memoirs, Hashemi Rafsanjani mentions some of Iran's aid to the Republic of Azerbaijan:

"I told the Foreign Minister by phone that [Mr. Velayati] could apply for the passage of Afghan fighters to Azerbaijan. The two sides demanded that they provide weapons and ammunition and take action to protect the site of the Khodaafarin Dam in Azerbaijan against the Armenians. "Mr. Forouzandeh [the Minister of Defense] announced that a $ 30 million arms and ammunition deal had been made with the Azeris. [7]"

...

"In the evening we talked on the phone with Mr. Heydar Aliyev, the acting President of Azerbaijan. He thanked us for our help and said that they have elections on October 2nd. [9]

A former high-ranking Iranian official was quoted by the Mashreq Defense and Security Group as saying: "The commanders of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps were sent to the Republic of Azerbaijan during the Karabakh war and trained its fighters and soldiers. "But when Heydar Aliyev, the former president of the Republic of Azerbaijan, saw that the IRGC commanders were praying and praying, he returned them from the Republic of Azerbaijan." [10]

Mansour Haghighatpour, one of the commanders of the Revolutionary Guards Corps, wrote in his official website about his introduction: The most defense and training cooperation will take place between Iran and the Republic of Azerbaijan. "[11] + Video of military training of Azeri fighters by the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps [12]

In an interview with the Inter Press website of the Republic of Azerbaijan, Noureddine Khoja, one of the commanders of the Republic of Azerbaijan, said in response to a reporter's question whether any of his neighbors helped us: "We asked Iran for help in the Zangilan incidents; "If it were not for the Iranian artillery fire at that time, the people of Zangilan would have been killed." [13]

"Gholam Asgar Karimian," one of the commanders of the Revolutionary Guards, said in a press conference on the occasion of the 2nd of Ordibehesht (the anniversary of the founding of the Revolutionary Guards): "He called the Karabakh war one of the oppressions of Iran. "At the highest level, we helped the government of Azerbaijan, but some with special intentions tried not to express it." [14]

In March 2010, Mohsen Rezaei, a former commander of the Revolutionary Guards, told reporters in Tabriz that a large number of Iranians had been killed in support of the Republic of Azerbaijan in the Nagorno-Karabakh war, and that Iran had provided military assistance and training to the Republic of Azerbaijan during the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. "He has not hesitated."

Sardar Kabiri, Iran's military adviser during the Nagorno-Karabakh war, also said at the "Islam Topraqi" summit: "The Islamic Republic of Iran did not withhold logistical, support, educational and political assistance from the Muslim government and people of the Republic of Azerbaijan during the Karabakh war. One of the direct contributions to Azerbaijan is the sale of weapons worth $ 25 million in the same year; Also, according to the memorandum between the Iranian government and the government of Azerbaijan, 8,000 Azeri forces received military training under the supervision of Iranian trainers, and the late Heydar Aliyev attended the training maneuver of these forces several times.

The High Adviser to the Governor of East Azerbaijan, noting that unfortunately the Islamic Republic of Iran was later accused in the mass media of the Republic of Azerbaijan of supporting the Armenian forces in this moharebeh, said that the reason for this atmosphere was behind-the-scenes groups seeking to distance Iran from Azerbaijan and vice versa. . [15]



2) After that, Azarbaijan's pan-Turkist president Elchibey gave backing to Azari separatism against Iran. This naturally was bound to dampen Iran's enthusiasm in embracing Baku.

3) Despite this, Iran stepped in as a mediator, willing to help end the conflict.

4) Today Baku hosts an Israeli embassy and purchases weapons from Isra"el", Mossad agents are said to use Azari soil for operations against Iran. Likewise, the government in Baku at times cracks down on Muslim religious scholars, bans hijab at numerous public places, erects a masonic obelisk in the capital city.

Despite this, Iran keeps offering its bneutral mediation to end the current conflict.

I have posted the source from the Azerbaycan government of Iranian funding for terrorist Christian groups in Armenia before on this forum.

I will have to look for it and find it again.

I admire your patriotism for a foreign country, Iran, and I wish you put this much effort to defend your own country from malicious lies and propaganda of Iran, India, US, and others.

I hope you will deem it worthy to have at least a look at the elements I posted from wikipedia nonetheless, as I don't think they're mere lies, and then make up your own mind.

I take it your engagement in favor of the Republic of Azerbaijan, whose president is pictured by local media in this manner:

http://www.turan.az/mmedia/2020/main/052800027289.jpg

Ilham Aliyev laid flowers at the obelisk of Azerbaijan Republic


and whose government jails Muslim scholars for campaigning, among other things, for freedom of hijab in public administrations, is motivated by your criticism of Iran.

And you're certainly entitled to this opinion, which I do respect. I'm an advocate of improved Pakistan-Iran relations. My personal history (including with regards to Iran) is objectively an exceptionally peculiar one, and involves circumstances I did not get to choose, but which inevitably were bound to shape me (and which I don't wish to elaborate on at this point, hope you'll pardon me; but these may explain some of my postings). Granted, there may not be another individual sharing this sort of a history.

Iran seems to be quietly backing Armenia in the conflict.

Renewed clashes between Azerbaijan and Armenia in occupied Nagorno-Karabakh are already a geopolitical flashpoint between Russia, which supports Yerevan, and Turkey, which supports Baku.

But what role does Iran, a Shia-Muslim majority country like Azerbaijan, which neighbours both countries, have? Experts with a close eye on the conflict think Iran is secretly backing Armenia, a Christian-majority country.

Iran has officially called on both sides to cease clashes, offering mediation between the two countries.

“Generally-speaking, Iran appears to be closer to Armenia in its relations with both countries,” says Bulent Aras, professor of international relations at Istanbul Policy Center-Sabanci University.

Aras recounts several factors for Iran’s implicit support of Armenia, ranging from Iran’s political alliance with Russia, to Tehran’s trade ties with Yerevan.

But among other reasons, the changing political nature of Iran’s Azeri Turkish population (how the population with Azerbaijani heritage is referred to inside Iran) plays an important role in Tehran’s close connections to Yerevan, says Aras.

“Increasing Turkish nationalism [among the Azeri Turks] in Iran has been seen as a serious political problem by Iran. Connections and relations between the country’s north [where a sizable Azeri Turkish population lives] and Azerbaijan have been an important factor in Tehran’s political problems with Azerbaijan,” Aras tells TRT World.

Iran’s ‘Turkic problem’

Some Azeris believe that Iran’s Turkic-origin population, which includes Turkmen, Qashgais and other Turkish-speaking groups, might amount to nearly 40 percent.

Many Azeris call Iran’s north as southern Azerbaijan, where nearly 20 million Azeris live according to different estimates. Some Azeri nationalists and intellectuals have long defined both northern and southern parts as culturally and socially identical, arguing that they should be joined under a political union.

“In Iran, due to the enormous Turkish population, there has historically been a political fear that two Azerbaijans, Baku [the capital of northern Azerbaijan] and Tabriz [the capital of southern Azerbaijan] might join at some point,” says Esref Yalinkilicli, a Moscow-based Eurasia political analyst.

“On the other hand, in Azerbaijani political memory and foreign policy, the idea of Greater Azerbaijan has always been an important factor,” Yalinkilicli tells TRT World.

For centuries, Iran and Azerbaijan had been ruled by Turkic-origin states, from the Seljuks to the Safavids, and eventually the Qajars. During the rule of the Qajars in the 19th century, after losing some crucial battles to the Russians, the Shia-Turkish dynasty ceded some crucial parts of its territories to the Russians - the Aras, or Araxes River, became the border line between the two states, dividing current territories effectively.

While the northern part of Azerbaijan became part of the Soviet Union as the Azerbaijan Republic after the communist Bolshevik Revolution of 1917, the southern part stayed under the Qajars. They were replaced by the Persian-origin Pahlavi dynasty, the founding family of current Iran, in the early 20th century.

The political argument of Greater Azerbaijan has long been a threat for the Iranian establishment, which has used its support of Armenia as a counter-measure to minimise Azeri aspirations in Iran and across the region, says Yalinkilicli.

“Iran’s traditional Armenia policy has long been a balancing act against both Azerbaijan and Turkey across southern Caucasia. As a result, behind-the-scenes, Iran backs Armenia,” Yalinkilicli tells TRT World.

While Iran has a Shia majority and Azeris are overwhelmingly Shia, Azeris speak a Turkish dialect, which is very close to Turkey’s Turkish, and have established close connections with Ankara since the collapse of the communist Soviet Union.

Turkey's Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan (R) speaks as Azerbaijan's President Ilham Aliyev listens during a news conference following a signing ceremony in Istanbul June 26, 2012.

Also, national awareness among Iran’s Azeris has increasingly become more evident as globalism has enabled the country’s Turkic-origin population to connect their brethren living in other neighbouring countries including Azerbaijan and Turkey, says Yalinkilicli.

Iran’s other motivations

However, aside from increasing Turkish nationalism in Iran, there are also other political reasons for Tehran’s support of Armenia.

“Reasons like land disputes between the two countries [Iran and Azerbaijan], increasing nationalism among Azeri Turks, issues regarding how to share natural sources of the Caspian Sea, Azerbaijan’s close relations with Israel, [which is an archenemy of Iran across the Middle East] and a political desire to balance Turkey-Azerbaijan relations occasionally lead to some tensions and crisis between Baku and Tehran,” says Aras, the international relations professor.

Aras also underlines that Iran’s low-profile Armenian policy, which is officially a mediating position between the two countries, might significantly change should the existing political status quo be altered by the clashes in the occupied Karabakh region, which is disputed between Azerbaijan and Armenia.

“We need to pay attention to what Iran would do if the political status quo changes,” says the professor.

According to recent reports, Azerbaijan appears to have an upper hand in the Karabakh region, gaining some crucial territories during recent clashes.

“There is a weak possibility that Iran will militarily intervene in the conflict. But if there is a clear development in favour of Azerbaijan, it could be said that some political groups in Iran would have serious discomfort about that.

“But there is a little possibility that Iran would reveal that discomfort in its official policy,” he concludes.

Iran doesn’t need to play games with scumbags who try to steal Iranian lands they need the iron fist and not support also karabakh is not religious conflict don’t you Islamists try to bring religion to everything

No matter what facts you post these erdogan dogs will always bark at Iran
Interestingly, Saudis seem to be backing Armenia as well. Israel seems to be backing Azerbaijan.
And that’s say that this conflict have nothing to do with religion yet the naive Pakistanis keep crying about Muslim vs Christian due their brainwashing of the islamists in Pakistan

Iran wants to keep Israel and Turkey out of Azerbaijan and best way to do that is to support Armenia.

Also, Azerbaijan/Turkey/Israel probably want to try taking back Iranian Azerbaijan to test Iranian defenses, but they will be fools to do it because they will get crushed by Iran if they try it.
Iran should annex that fake Stalin made country which was stolen by Russia
