Armenia not cooperating with Iran at the expense of U.S. - top diplomat

PanARMENIAN.Net - Armenia does not develop relations with a country at the expense of a third one, Deputy Foreign Minister Karen Nazaryan said at the 2019 draft budget discussion at the National Assembly on Tuesday, November 6.

“We are not cooperating with Iran at the expense of our partnership with the United States," Nazaryan was quoted as saying by Aysor.am.

"Great diplomatic and political efforts are necessary, especially given the international sanctions.”
