Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi has welcomed a decision by the Armenian parliament to pick the country’s new prime minister, ending weeks of nationwide protests.
In a Saturday statement, Qassemi said neighbours and their calm, stability and security are a major priority for Iran.
“Like before, we are ready to expand and deepen our relations with Armenia in all fields,” he said.
Armenia’s parliament elected Nikol Pashinyan as the country’s new prime minister on Tuesday.
The appointment ended weeks of street protests led by Pashinyan against the election of Serzh Sargsyan, Armenia’s president for the past 10 years, to the premiership office.
