Armenia was in a bad situation, during the period of sanctions against Iran.
Iranian Ambassador Seyed Kazzem Sajjadi on Monday told the abovementioned to reporters, after the opening ceremony of the Iranian Studies classroom at Yerevan State University.
According to him, Iran has been taking steps to establish peace in Armenia even since the Karabakh war.
"The political relations between our two countries have always been very good. We can provide numerous opportunities for you. There is a 70,000-strong Armenian community in Iran. In our country Armenians live very peacefully alongside Muslims. And when the Iranian Armenian comes to Yerevan, it is difficult to define whether he is Armenian from Armenia or from Iran. Work to direct opportunities of Iran, having 80 million population, to Armenia," the ambassador said.
