Armenian premier to visit Tehran soon

The newly-appointed Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan will visit Tehran in the near future, an Armenian official announced.

The Secretary of the National Security Council of Armenia Armen Grigoryan made the announcement on his Facebook page on Friday, following his meeting with Iran’s Ambassador to Armenia Kazem Sajjadi.

The Armenian prime minister will discuss cooperation among the two countries in energy, health and financial fields, among others during his Iran visit, Grigoryan wrote, reported.

Referring to his meeting with the Iranian ambassador on Thursday, Grigoryan added, “Highly appreciating the rich history of mutual assistance and cooperation between the two countries and nations, I expressed hope that the high level of political relations between our countries will help to have the same high-level economic relations, which in its turn will contribute to our security and stability.”

Ambassador Sajjadi also spoke about the exceptionally high level of relations between our countries, underlining that Armenia, being Iran’s only Christian neighbor, is a partner with a warm and benevolent relationship.

Armenia’s parliament elected Pashinyan as the country’s new prime minister late in April.
