Iran’s First Vice President Eshag Jahangiri told reporters after the meeting with Armenia’s Prime Minister Hovik Abrahamyan pledged to expand bilateral cooperation on the basis of the deeply rooted friendship between the two countries, according to Armeian media.
“The success achieved within the framework of 5+1 talks creates new and positive conditions for the development of relations and opens new spheres for the development of bilateral economic cooperation,” Jahangiri said.
The vice-president said construction of the third high-voltage power is currently under way and will be completed in the shortest term.
