Iran supports the implementation of the “Crossroads of Peace” concept proposed by the Armenian government, the Iranian Embassy in Armenia stated in response to the question of “Armenpress”, stressing that Tehran supports the expansion of ties within the region.
“We consider the right of sovereignty of countries to be the main prerequisite for any project of unblocking the routes. We welcome the project, which contributes to the creation of the opportunity for Armenia to play a role in the system of dynamic economic ties in the region,” the Iranian embassy said.
At the end of October last year, Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan presented the “Crossroads of Peace” project and the peace agenda in Tbilisi, stressing that the project is an important part of the peace agenda.
According to the executive head of Armenia, “the key meaning of the project is the development of communications between Armenia, Turkey, Azerbaijan, and the Islamic Republic of Iran by repairing, building, and operating roads, railways, pipelines, cables, power lines.”
