TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran has appointed a consul general in Armenia’s southern city of Kapan.
In line with the policy of expansion of relations with the northern neighbors, the Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs appointed Abedin Varamin as the consul general of the Islamic Republic in Kapan, a town in southeast Armenia.
The Iranian administration decided to reopen the country’s consul general in Kapan in late December 2021 upon a proposal by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Kapan is the capital of Syunik Province of Armenia.
The Armenian province hosts Meghri border crossing, which is connected to Iran’s border town of Nordooz.
