In an interview on August 1, Karapetyan described Iran-Armenia relations as “exemplary and unique”, adding, “The friendship between the two neighbours is so firm that it is just necessary to further develop and deepen them by maintaining the commonalities uniting us for centuries. This is the reliable base and stronghold of our relations.”
