ARMEN MARTIROSYAN: ARMENIA CAN BENEFIT FROM IRAN NUKE DEAL IF AUTHORITIES TAKE CORRECT STEPS

Armenia can benefit from the extended round of talks on Iranian nuclear
program, if, of course, the country’s authorities take correct steps,
Vice-Chairman of the Heritage Party Armen Martirosyan said on Friday.
He says the framework agreement reached between Iran and the six
world powers can benefit us in terms of security and economic issues.
“Armenia has a good opportunity to be involved in these major economic
programs, even a small participation can ensure bid dividends. We
can pursue multi-vector foreign policy and develop the economy from
the economic, military, social, and cultural points of view,” Mr
Martitrosyan told A1+.
He says the opposition is not entitled to take practical steps and
everything depends on the government. The Heritage representative says
Armenia’s Ambassador to Iran Artashes Tumanyan is an experienced and
competent person but cannot do anything either.
On April 2, Iran and world powers reached a framework agreement on
Thursday on curbing Iran’s nuclear program for at least a decade,
after eight days of marathon talks in Switzerland. Iran will now
work with the US, UK, France, China, Russia and Germany to continue
talks and reach a final agreement by June 30. Under the deal Tehran
is obliged to refrain from creating nuclear weapons. All sanctions
on Iran remain in place until a final deal is reached.
