ArmInfo. Hossein Amir Abdollahiyan's statement is an interference in the affairs of sovereign Armenia, well-known Russian-Israeli political scientist, journalist Avigdor Eskin told ArmInfo, commenting on the words of the special adviser to the Iranian parliament, Secretary General of the Permanent Secretariat of the International Conference on the Palestinian Intifada in the Iranian Parliament, Hossein Alamir Abir.
Abdollahiyan, as Tasnim reported, called unexpected the decision of official Yerevan to open an embassy of Aormenia in Tel Aviv. "Such a measure will undoubtedly run counter to the interests of the Palestinian people and will have negative consequences for the stability and security of the region," he said. He also described the friendly relations of Tehran and Yerevan as one of the main factors in maintaining regional stability and security, and expressed hope that the Armenian government would think twice about its decision and adopt the necessary plans to support the oppressed and displaced population of Palestine.
As Avigdor Eskin noted, no one has the right to tell Armenia with whom to be friends and with whom to establish diplomatic relations. "Not only the states of the Caucasus region, but also many Arab countries are actively establishing relations with Israel, since this corresponds to their interests. Over the past year, Israel has overtaken England, France, and Japan by GDP per capita. Israel is one of the recognized world leaders in the field of high-tech, medicine and agriculture. Friendship with Israel brings real benefits. The Iranian government should learn from Israel for peaceful construction. This would benefit both the people of Iran and its neighbors. I hope the day is near when Iran will open an embassy in Jerusalem. And Armenia can contribute to this", the political scientist emphasized.
