Armenia is taking maximally possible practical steps to deepen partnership with Iran, PM Nikol Pashinyan said during an interview, addressing Iran’s statements made in support of Armenia’s territorial integrity.
Pashinyan was asked what steps are being taken to deepen partnership with Iran on the basis of Iran’s position which was expressed in numerous statements in support of Armenia’s territorial integrity after the Azerbaijani aggression.
Drawing parallels between the assessments made by the CSTO and Iran regarding the Azeri aggression, Pashinyan emphasized that in this regard what matters is the formulation of a clear political position because actions stem from that positions.
“If there is no clear political position there can’t be actions. In this regard we are very closely cooperating with Iran. You saw that I met with the President of Iran in New York City. We had a very long, detailed discussion, we spoke about developing our relations, and we also discussed the regional situation.
We are in very intensive relations, mutual visits are taking place, working discussions are taking place, phone conversations, and we, of course, are interested in developing our relations with Iran and we are trying to make maximally possible practical steps in this direction,” Pashinyan said.
