Armenia can be a bridge between the Persian Gulf and the Black Sea: Iran’s Ambassador
Iran will be able to deepen its international relations, especially with neighbors, after the sanctions are lifted, Ambasaador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Iran to Armenia Mohammad Raisi told reporters in Yerevan.
The Ambassador said Iran’s Vice-President will visit Armenia in the coming months.
The Ambassador said “Armenia can be a bridge linking the Persian Gulf to the Black Sea.” “This may take a long time, but it’s unequivocal that communications can have a serious impact on the development of Armenian and Iranian economies,” he noted.
He added that the lifting of sanctions and Iran’s return as a full-fledged member of the international community will change the situation in the Middle East and will give new quality to the relations with neighbors.
Mohammad Raisi hopes the level of economic relations between Armenia and Iran will reach that of political ties.
As for the Karabakh conflict, the Ambassador hopes the issue will be solved in a peaceful way through negotiations.
He said “Peace and security in neighboring countries is a guarantee of Iran’s security.”
