YEREVAN.- Iranian Ambassador to Armenia said it is wrong to give religious overtones to political conflicts.
“Each nation has the right not to forget tragedies of the past. I do not consider the Iranian community a part of the Diaspora.
The Diaspora centers are formed by means of migration, while the Armenian community has been a part of Iran for thousand years. It is free in its traditions,” Seyed Ali Saqqaiyan said commenting on Armenian community’s involvement in genocide recognition campaign.
The Ambassador stressed that Iran’s position is simple and clear. “Each year I visit the April 24 events to honor the memory of victims and lay wreath at the memorial. We do not want such a tragedy to repeat in the history of any nation,” he added.
