TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Armenian Prime Minister Karen Karapetyan will pay a two-day visit to the Islamic Republic of Iran on October 9 at the invitation of Iran’s First Vice President Eshaq Jahangiri.
The head of the Armenian government will sit down with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, Jahangiri and the country’s Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani, the official website of Armenia’s Public Radio reported on Saturday.
