Addressing a conference on strategic Baku-Tel Aviv relations and their impact on Iran-Azerbaijan cooperation, the Iranian diplomat said, "I believe that Baku-Tel Aviv relations are not strategic. Basically no Muslim country can have strategic relations with Israel."
The envoy believed that there is nothing special in Azerbaijan's relations with Israel, but the Zionist regime amplifies the way the relations sound in order to pull itself out of isolation.
Pakayeen added that Israel has occupied Islamic lands including all of Palestine and parts of Syria and Lebanon.
He believed that Israel is the number one threat to the Islamic world and cannot establish strategic relations with Islamic countries.
Pakayeen's remarks came as the Israeli National Security Council's counterterrorism bureau advised its citizens against travelling to Azerbaijan on Nowrouz holiday.
According to the Izrus website, the Zionist regime's counterterrorism bureau has advised Israeli citizens (residents of occupied Palestinian territories) against travelling to 12 countries and 8 regions in other countries of the world.
From post-Soviet countries only Azerbaijan is named in the list. The bureau has classified Azerbaijan under the "ongoing potential threat" category and advised Israel's citizens against travelling to this country.
Izrus reports that the travel alert is supposedly connected with the threat of abduction of Israelis.
Meantime, the Iranian envoy Baku described Iran-Azerbaijan relations better than any time in the past, and cautioned that the Israeli media are trying to impose negative vibe on Tehran-Baku relationship in a bid to undermine the expanding relations between the two neighboring nations.
Pakayeen further noted the recent positive developments in Tehran-Baku relations, such as a visit by Secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) to Baku Saeed Jalili, and said that due to these developments, the Israeli media are resolved to harm the Tehran-Baku relationship.
