Terrorism and security expert Abdullah Agar assessed the attack on the CNN Türk live broadcast. Agar’s statements are as follows;

The events between Azerbaijan and Iran are extremely tense. Especially after the 2nd Karabakh war. Iran has tried many times to intimidate Azerbaijan in various ways. Can this be interpreted as a continuation of this? You must look. An asymmetric action that wants this voltage to increase should also be considered. The issue is extremely delicate. Diplomatic attack is always important.

However, this issue of diplomatic protection concerns Iran and cannot be defended. There is life, there is the wounded. Iran has extremely important statements. This causes international distrust. Especially; If anyone connected to or associated with the Iranian government goes outside, they will go to a completely different place. There may be a third state.

It is extremely important for us and Azerbaijan to be close to our Azerbaijan. Turkey will always be close to Azerbaijan. Today Sisi is on a visit to Azerbaijan. Maybe it’s in him? He needs to be interrogated. Relations between Azerbaijan and Iran are already extremely strained. What is behind Iran’s fast pace? We need an answer that will satisfy hearts and minds.
