Bishop Davidian: Armenians enjoy full religious freedom in Iran

September 3, 2018

TEHRAN – Reacting to claims by U.S. officials that there is no religious freedom in Iran, chief of Armenian Catholic diocese of Iran Bishop Sarkis Davidian said on Monday that the Armenians enjoy full religious freedom in Iran, emphasizing that such claims are “biased” and “baseless”.

In a statement, Bishop Davidian said the U.S. officials’ viewpoint about minorities in Iran is in “opportunistic” one which is primarily aimed to meet the wishes of Washington, IRNA reported.

He also said the Armenian Catholics, like the entire world, are concerned about the reimposition of sanctions, which will affect the Iranian nation, including its religious minorities.
