STOCKHOLM. - WikiLeaks has declassified another secret document concerning Armenia. This document contains a detailed analysis of the Armenian-Iranian relations, prepared by the United States Embassy in Azerbaijan.

As former U.S. ambassador to Azerbaijan Anne Derse said in a preface to the reports her subordinate, dealing with the problems of Iran, arrived in Yerevan in October 2007 and met with representatives of political circles, businessmen and cultural figures.

"Armenian experts believe that Iran’s nuclear aspirations are irreversible. In addition, Armenian specialists expressed their belief that Iran is deeply interested in maintaining the status quo in the region, particularly in maintaining the current situation of Nagorno-Karabakh problem," reads the report.

Former National Security Minister David Shahnazaryan in an interview with American diplomat also spoke about bilateral Armenian-Iranian relations.

"Relations between Iran and Armenia are not limited to trade links. There is a high-level cooperation in connection with political issues and security cooperation," said Shahnazaryan, stressing that Iran does not wish to progress towards resolution of the Karabakh problem, since status quo diverts the attention of Azerbaijan from Azerbaijanis living in northern Iran.
