Need to Counter Israeli Plots in Region

A senior Iranian official warned against Israeli interventionist plots in the region, calling for vigilance in the face of attempts by outsiders to wage war.
Ali Akbar Velayati, the senior adviser to Leader of Islamic Revolution on international affairs, made the statement in a meeting with Armenian Defense Minister Vigen Sargsyan in Tehran on Thursday, Press TV reported. 
"We should be vigilant in the face of infiltration by some foreign elements, including the Zionist regime, and be watchful so that foreigners are not able to ignite the flames [of war] in our region," Velayati said.
The top official hoped that Tehran could mediate between Armenia and Azerbaijan, which are entangled in a dispute over the Nagorno-Karabakh region, saying the Islamic Republic wants a "fair" settlement of the row.
The Nagorno-Karabakh conflict began in 1988 and escalated into armed clashes after the collapse of the Soviet Union in the early 1990s. Sporadic tensions and border skirmishes have continued in the region despite a ceasefire signed in 1994.
Nagorno-Karabakh is internationally recognized as part of Azerbaijan. However, it is governed by the self-proclaimed Nagorno-Karabakh Republic.
Sargsyan stressed that the level of cooperation between Iran and Armenia and the mutual challenges they face is a good reason for the two sides to boost their interactions.
The Armenian defense minister arrived in Tehran on Monday at the head of a senior defense delegation.
He has held talks with high-ranking Iranian officials, including Defense Minister Hossein Dehqan, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani and Secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council Ali Shamkhani.
