Armenian-Iranian relations not to depend on political environment - expert

14:16, 20.06.2012 Region: Armenia, Iran Theme: Politics, Analytics

YEREVAN. – Peculiarity of relations between Armenia and Iran is that they do not depend on political environment, expert Gagik Harutyunyan said at a press conference on Wednesday.

“I believe common and mutually beneficial relations will not suffer many changes. They are developing steadily,” the expert added.

At the same time, relations between Iran and Azerbaijan have deteriorated for the recent years. Moreover, the image of Iran is associated with the enemy for the Azerbaijanis. The analyst recalled the naval weapons purchased by Azerbaijan from Israel. He stressed that naval weapons can hardly be used against Karabakh.

On the other hand, it seems like Azerbaijan is included in anti-Iranian campaign, and Baku is not glad for it.

“Iran should not be compared with Libya or Iraq, everything is far more serious there. And Armenia is in more beneficial position as no one expects any steps taken by Armenia,” Harutyunyan concluded.
