Iran is quite serious about deepening and developing economic ties with Armenia.
Karen Khanlarian, an Armenian MP from the Iranian parliament, told the aforementioned to Armenian News-NEWS.am.
“The best proof is the bill that relates to the joint use of the Norduz-Meghri border gate,” added the Armenian deputy. “Iran is interested in Armenia not solely as a neighboring country, but as a member state of the Eurasian Economic Union [(EAEU)].”
Khanlarian noted that the two countries have far-reaching objectives, and perhaps this is why the construction of a free economic zone has gotten underway nearby Meghri town, on the border with Iran.
And when asked whether Iranian businessmen are interested in investing in Armenia, he responded as follows: “There are Tax Code, currency issues in connection with investments. There is an interest in Iran. I hope the existing problems will be resolved. Such promises have been made that the system will be further streamlined.”
