Armenian parliamentary delegation to visit Iran

A parliamentary delegation from Armenia is set to pay an official visit to Tehran next week to discuss issues of mutual interest in meetings with Iranian legislators.

The trip comes to further boost parliamentary, political, economic and cultural relations between the two countries, said Director of the Protocol Office of Iran’s Majlis Mohammad Yasrebi.

Leader of the Republican Party of Armenia parliamentary faction Galust Sahakyan, who leads the Armenian team, is scheduled to sit down with Iranian authorities, including Ali Kaeidi, the chairman of the Iran-Armenia Parliamentary Friendship Group.

The Armenian lawmakers are also expected to meet Iranian Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani during their stay in Iran.

On August 5, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said the Islamic Republic will seek to expand relations with Armenia.

“The relations between the Islamic Republic of Iran and Armenia have always been friendly, close and based on mutual interests, and definitely in the future, Tehran’s efforts will focus on deepening relations and improving cooperation in all sectors,” Rouhani said in a meeting with his Armenian counterpart Serzh Sargsyan in Tehran.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran has always expanded interaction with Armenia based on cultural and civilization commonalities,” the Iranian president said.

For his part, Sargsyan highlighted two decades of effective and constructive cooperation between Tehran and Yerevan.
