TEHRAN – Former Armenian president Robert Kocharyan met with Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki on Wednesday to exchange views over regional and bilateral ties.

The senior Iranian diplomat described the Iran-Armenia relation as “long-standing” and underscored the necessity to maintain calm in the Caucasus region.
“Security and stability in the Caucasus should be consolidated by regional approaches,” he said.
Commenting on the current economic crisis facing the world, he said these problems have stemmed from the corrupt system ruling the world which was established after the Second World War.
Robert Kocharyan, for his part, said Armenia is determined to expand bilateral cooperation with Iran.
He also highlighted the efficiency of regional approaches in promoting regional security and economic development, saying the foreign powers’ prescriptions for resolving crises in the Caucasus region is destructive.
