No problem to be solved in ME without Iran: US  archbishop

Tehran, Jan 5, IRNA - Archbishop Sebouh Sarkissian, Primate of the Armenian Prelacy of Tehran, said Sunday that no problem in the Middle East region would be solved without Iran since the country is internationally known as an influential regional power.

In a meeting with Vice-President for Women Affairs Shahindokht Mowlaverdi, the archbishop said the Iranian Armenians make great efforts to introduce Iran's real image to the world.

Referring to the unfair sanctions imposed on Tehran by certain states for its peaceful nuclear activities, Archbishop Sarkissian said the Iranian Armenians condemn the West's hostile stance against Iran.

As to Iran's significant role in resolving regional crises, he stressed that Tehran's representative should participate in the Geneva II conference on Syria, slated for January 23.
