Iranian Embassy in Armenia responds to Azeri MP’s false claims about Blue Mosque

The Iranian Embassy in Armenia has responded to the false claims of Azerbaijani MP Tahir Mirkishili about the Blue Mosque in Yerevan.

The Azeri parliamentarian and his fellow MP Soltan Mammadov, who came to Yerevan as participants in the meetings of the Euronest Parliamentary Assembly hosted by Armenia on 21-22 February, visited the Persian mosque on Wednesday.

Sharing a photo of the mosque on Facebook, Mirkishili falsely presented it as Azerbaijani.

“We have been to the Blue Mosque. As far as we know, it is the only Azerbaijani monument preserved in Yerevan,” he wrote.

“The Blue Mosque, a symbol of Iranian art, has been active again in the last 3 decades as the praying and congregation place of Muslims residing in Armenia and a touristic attraction,” the Iranian Embassy said in a tweet.

“A great pleasure that its centuries-old Persian epigraphy has been preserved! Who can read them?” it added.

Azerbaijani MPs falsely present Persian Blue Mosque in Yerevan as Azerbaijani

The two Azerbaijani MPs, who arrived in Armenia to take part in the meetings of the Bureau and committees of the Euronest Parliamentary Assembly, visited the Persian Blue Mosque in Yerevan.

MP Tahir Mirkishili shared a photo of him and another Azerbaijani MP Soltan Mammadov in front of the mosque on his Facebook page, falsely presenting it as Azerbaijani.

“We have been to the Blue Mosque. As far as we know, it is the only Azerbaijani monument preserved in Yerevan,” he wrote.

“Although there are inscriptions related to another state on its walls, its architecture, walls, and spirit as a whole are affiliated with Azerbaijan. We believe that its true owners will soon be able to offer their prayers in the mosque,” Mirkishili said.
