Tehran, Yerevan sign sisterhood agreement

TEHRAN, Jan. 18 (MNA) – The mayors of Tehran and Yerevan signed a sisterhood agreement between the two capitals on Wednesday.

The signing ceremony of the sisterhood agreement between the two cities of Tehran and Yerevan was held with the participation of Tehran Mayor Alireza Zakani, Yerevan Mayor Hrachya Sargsyan and Armenian Ambassador Arsen Avagyan at Milad Tower Conference hall.

Zakani said, "One of the definitive policies of the Islamic Republic of Iran is establishing communication, cooperation and good neighborliness with its neighboring countries. Armenia also has a special place for Iran, and we are interested in expanding relations between the two countries."

The Tehran mayor further added, "The relations between Iran and Armenia date back hundreds of years ago, therefore, in the current situation, communication comes with special advantages for both countries."

"Tehran Municipality has capabilities and needs; We can best provide our capabilities to Yerevan Municipality and use Armenia's capabilities to meet our needs," Zakani stressed.

Yerevan mayor, for his part, pointed to long-standing and deep-rooted Iran-Armenia relations and said, "We haven't fully used our capabilities and potential that the two neighboring countries have."

Sargsyan added that he paid a visit to the Tehran subway system and was impressed by the Iranian capital's metro. "For this reason, if possible, I request that a working group be sent to Armenia from Tehran Municipality. I think we can cooperate both in terms of new technologies and in relation to subway spare parts," the Armenian mayor said.

He further voiced hope that the sisterhood agreement will lay the ground for more cooperation between the two municipalities.

Armenian Ambassador Arsen Avagyan, for his part, said that the Embassy will spare no efforts to materialize the provisions of the agreement between Tehran and Yerevan municipalities.
