Armenian-Iran cooperation is entering into a new qualitative
stage. While presenting his credentials to Armenian President Robert
Kocharyan the new ambassador extraordinary and plenipotentiary of the
Islamic Republic of Iran [IRI], Ali Reza Haqiqian, passed on Iranian
President Mohammad Khatami’s warm greetings. He said that Iran highly
assesses the Armenian president’s attention to bilateral relations and
the development of mutually beneficial cooperation and outlined
President Kocharyan’s official visit to Iran in 2001.

The Iranian president’s forthcoming official visit to Armenia would
also be a serious impetus for developing bilateral relations.

The Armenian president gave a positive assessment to the current level
of Armenian-Iran relations in all spheres and spoke in favour of their
future development.
