YEREVAN— “Iran can use Armenia as a bridge to enter the markets of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) member countries,” said Iranian Ambassador to Armenia Seyyed Kazem Sajjad during a meeting in Yerevan on Friday.
“Political relations of Armenia and Iran are at an excellent level, but the level of economic relations is unacceptable and insufficient,” said Sajjad. “After the lifting of entry visas, we will witness a large tourist flow between the two countries; this will also contribute to attracting investors, which will lead to the development of [bilateral] economic relations.”
Sajjad added that exchanging of students between Armenia and Iran will promote the development of cultural relations. “As a neighbor, Iran can provide great opportunities to Armenia,” he said.
