Future of Ties With Armenia Looks Better

The appointment of a prime minister in Armenia who favors close cooperation with Iran bodes well for the future of two-way relations, says a political analyst. 
Developing ties with Tehran remains a priority for Yerevan's foreign policy establishment, Vali Koozegar-Kaleji, a researcher at the Strategic Research Center of the Expediency Council, told ISNA in an  interview. 
In a key development in the former Soviet republic, Armenia's parliament elected opposition leader Nikol Pashinyan as prime minister on May 8, capping a peaceful revolution driven by weeks of mass protests against corruption that had plunged the country into political crisis and forced his predecessor out. 
Demonstrations erupted after parliament voted to allow Serzh Sargsyan, who had served as president for a decade, to become premier, in a job switch his opponents said showed he was clinging to power, Reuters reported. 
After the appointment of Pashinyan—who holds power in the southern Caucasus nation under a revised constitution—Iran said it welcomes efforts to promote stability, peace and security in Armenia and advocates stronger relations in all fields.
