Iran is opening a consulate in Kapan — this is another signal showing how important Syunik Province of Armenia is for Tehran in the context of Armenian-Iranian relations. This is what Iranologist Vardan Voskanyan wrote on his Facebook page, touching upon the Iranian side’s decision to open Iran’s consulate in the city of Kapan.

“The opening of Armenia’s consulate in Tavriz (the center of Atrpatakan) will also be viewed as a major step towards the strengthening of Armenia-Iran relations and will serve as a clear signal to the tyrant of Baku,” the Iranologist also wrote.
