Armenia welcomes Iran nuclear deal

Armenia has welcomed the agreement reached between Iran and six world powers regarding the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program.

“We welcome the agreement reached in Geneva on Iran’s nuclear program. This is good news not only for the region but for the whole international community,” Armenian Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian said in a statement.

Armenia has always advocated a negotiated, peaceful solution of the issue, he added.

“Although the agreement reached is of interim nature, it paves the way for a comprehensive settlement through efforts of all negotiating parties,” Minister Nalbandian concluded.

Iran has agreed to curb some of its nuclear activities in return for about $7bn  in sanctions relief after five-day talkswith top representatives of the so-called P5+1 group – the United Kingdom, China, France, Russia, the United States, and Germany.
