Shamkhani says Iran ready to forge South Caucasus peace

Tehran, IRNA – Ali Shamkhani, Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council said on Thursday that the Islamic Republic is ready to leverage all of its capacities to help forge lasting peace in the South Caucasus region.

The top Iranian security official made the comment in a meeting with Secretary of Armenia’s Security Council Armen V. Grigoryan in Yerevan.

Shamkhani is in the Armenian capital for a one-day trip and arrived there earlier on Thursday.  

The two officials discussed issues of mutual interest.

Shamkhani referred to deep-rooted historical as well as cultural bonds between the two countries, saying that they prepare the proper ground for enhancing bilateral relations in all fields.

He also said that there is no limitation for expanding the bilateral ties as the Iranian and Armenian nations have over the past decades backed each other during difficult times at the regional and international levels.  

The Iranian official said that the current volume of economic exchanges between the two countries fall short of existing capacities, and called for efforts to increase the use of those capacities.

Grigoryan, on his part, stressed the need for developing relations between the two sides in all fields, given the great opportunities.      

He added that promoting economic and trade ties should be put on the top agenda of bilateral cooperation.

The Armenian security official also hailed Iran’s role in helping develop relations among South Caucasus countries and safeguard the security of that region.
