Armenia must address concerns over Aras River pollution

Tabriz, Dec 4, IRNA - The governor of East Azerbaijan, while referring to good relations between Iran and Armenia, said that Armenia would remove the concerns pertaining to the pollution of Aras River.

During a meeting with the Armenian ambassador to Iran on Wednesday, Mohammad Reza Pourmohammadi said that given the long history of Iran-Armenia relations, he hopes this trip will have a positive outcome.

The official said that Iran and Armenia have many commonalities in terms of civilization and the two countries have had good relations over the past decades.

The governor of East Azerbaijan noted that there are valuable cultural heritages of Iran in Armenia as well as valuable monuments from Armenia in Iran.

Pourmohammadi said that because of these longstanding cultural and historical ties, Armenians and Muslims in Iran and Tabriz live in peaceful coexistence.
