Hossein Rouyvaran, a professor of political science at Tehran University, said in an October 16, 2021 show on Alghad TV (Egypt/UAE) that Iran will not tolerate Israeli missile bases on Azerbaijani territory, nor any change to international borders in the region that threaten Iranian interests. He compared the situation to the Cuban Missile Crisis. For more about Professor Hossein Rouyvaran, see MEMRI TV Clips Nos. 8284 and 982.

Hossein Rouyvaran: "In the 1960s, when the Soviet Union and Cuba signed an agreement, and some Russian missiles were places in Cuba, America almost dragged the entire world into a third world war because of these missiles. For Israel to have military bases on Azerbaijani territory, or foe there to be a change in the international borders in the region that threatens the interests of Iran – this is unacceptable. Iran will not accept or allow it – no matter what it entails."
