Armenian MFA Deputy Minister: US has always been sympathetic to the friendly relations of Armenia with the Islamic Republic of Iran

ArmInfo. Armenia is interested in deepening cooperation with Iran and in this issue has never built relations with countries with an eye on others. Deputy Foreign Minister of Armenia Shavarsh Kocharyan stated in a conversation with journalists after the August 10 meeting of the Government, commenting on possible negative consequences for Armenia from the presence of President Serzh Sargsyan at the inauguration of the reelected Iranian President Hassan Roukhani, during which anti- American statements were made

According to the Deputy head, good relations with the Iran and their development do not harm the Armenian-American relations. "Even at a time when Iran was under the strictest sanctions of the West, the US was sympathetic to Armenia's friendly relations with Iran, and if the country is honest in its foreign policy, does not speak one thing in one place but does another, everything should be normal ", Kocharian noted.

Earlier, according to the expert, on the background of the weakening of  Turkey's positions, Iran's role will increase. In this connection,  the Turkologist notes the importance of the presence of the Armenian  delegation headed by the president at the inauguration of the elected  head of the Islamic Republic of Iran Hasan Ruhani. According to Ruben  Safrastyan, the Armenian-Iranian relations have already moved beyond  the bilateral, becoming a factor of regional stability. The factor  that Azerbaijan did not participate in the inauguration of the  Iranian president, according to the turkologist, says that Baku is  reviewing its regional policy, hinting at the US that follows the  regional policy of Washington and encourages pressure on Iran.
