What is happening in Iran's northern provinces for over 10 days is apparently directed not only by Baku and Ankara, but also Washington, political scientist Levon Melik-Shahnazaryan told a PanARMENIAN.Net reporter. In his words, it should not be forgotten that authors of the notorious cartoon, as well as editor of the Iran newspaper were arrested and apologies are presented to the Turkic speaking population of Iran.

«However, an «occasion» was invented and there is sort of official ground for discontent. It should not be surprising any more that slogans «Karabakh is our,» «Turkic people are united» and similar ones are heard during rallies,» he remarked.

When commenting on the fact of burning the Armenian national flag in Tebriz, the Armenian expert underscored that the incident is one of the directions of the policy of rally participants. «Their major goal is not Karabakh or Armenia. Major goal of rally participants is to tear away the territory, which will be the support for Turan's struggle against Iran,» the expert said.
