TEHRAN – Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi on Tuesday hailed the recent parliamentary elections in Armenia as part of a trend towards democratic changes in the neighboring country, the Foreign Ministry website reported.

In a statement, Qassemi expressed the hope that Iran and Armenia could increasingly strengthen their mutual relations following the participation of the Armenians in general elections and subsequent formation of the new government there. 

Establishing ties with all neighboring states has a very significant and decisive position in Iran’s foreign policy and helps establish peace, stability, prosperity and security in all regional states, he added.
