Iran warns of wider war if Armenia-Azerbaijan conflict continues


Iranian President Hassan Rouhani is warning that current fighting between Armenia and Azerbaijan could spill over its borders and evolve into a regional war. 

President Rouhani expressed his concerns about the conflict Wednesday during a meeting with his cabinet ministers.  

Hundreds of civilians and soldiers have been killed in fighting now in its 10th day between Armenia and Azerbaijan over the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh territory.


Iran shares its northwestern border with both Armenia and Azerbaijan and has good diplomatic relations with both nations.
