Ayatollah Khamenei’s remarks ‘important’ for Armenia: MP

Tehran, IRNA- An Armenian lawmaker says the position of Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution of Iran Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei regarding conflict in the Caucasus region has given the people of Armenia an important boost in morale.

Lilit Galtian told IRNA in an exclusive interview published on Saturday that after the 44-day war of 2020 between Armenia and Azerbaijan, “the balance of power in the South Caucasus was disrupted".

Even though many countries have since emphasized on sovereignty and territorial integrity of Armenia, she said, the statement made by Iran’s Supreme Leader stressing on “the security of the people and no change in borders has been more important for the people of Armenia from the point of view of morale".

“Last month, an official survey was conducted in Armenia asking the people, ‘which countries do you consider to be friends of Armenia?’ It might be interesting to you that the first three countries in this survey were Iran, America and France,” the Armenian MP said.

Galtian said that national security is “the most important issue” for Armenia at the moment “because our security is facing a serious threat".

Asked how Iran and other regional countries can help establish that security, she said Armenia has always been keen to address its security challenges through “dialogue” and will welcome governments that want to mediate between Yerevan and Baku.

“The presence of foreign countries cannot help with the regional crisis,” the Armenian MP added.
