The president welcomed the guests and stressed that Armenia always uses every chance to talk about its warm ages-old relationship with friendly country of Iran which is of vital importance to Armenia and is conditioned by historical-cultural similarities, mutual economic interests, peculiarities of the geopolitical position, and by common approaches to a number of regional issues, the press service of the RA President informs.
