Iran welcomes Armenia’s step towards peace and security

YEREVAN, DECEMBER 5, ARMENPRESS. Iran welcomes the latest steps made by the Armenian government for peace and security, Ambassador of Iran to Armenia Mehdi Sobhani has said.

“We support Armenia’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, we support lasting and sustainable peace in the region,” the Iranian Ambassador said at a forum entitled New Regional Reality and the Crossroads of Peace.

Ambassador Sobhani spoke about the historic relations between Armenia and Iran and the good-neighborly relations between the two governments which enable the side to further develop ties.

He said that Armenia and Iran have the shortest common border which has always been a border of friendship and peace.

Ambassador Sobhani mentioned the growing trade between the two countries, and that turnover is already reaching 1 billion dollars.

“Our two countries have mutually beneficial agreements in infrastructure development and energy. We are trying to reveal untapped potential for the benefit of the relations between the two countries. Undoubtedly, the opening of transit infrastructures and connection routes will contribute not only to the development of the economic and trade relations between the two countries, but will pave the way for regional participation. We believe that connection corridors from India up to the Chabahar Port, Armenia and the Black Sea, will provide a reliable road for shipping goods to the north, to Europe. The development of this route will safeguard our countries from foreign harm. In this context, we attach importance to India’s role in the development of the Chabahar Port, and we welcome the Armenian participation in this work. I believe that if the countries have more connection routes, they will acquire a more significant role in the international arena. This is the new concept of power,” the Ambassador said.
