Welcoming the ambassador, the Deputy Prime Minister emphasized the development of relations with friendly Iran and thanked for the targeted statements made by Iran regarding Azerbaijan's aggression against the sovereign territory of Armenia.

During the meeting, critical issues of the bilateral agenda were discussed, particularly cooperation in energy and transport. The importance of launching the railway between Armenia and Iran and the prospects of expanding cooperation under it were particularly emphasized in case of possible unblocking of regional transport links.
