    Iran is one of the only neighboring countries that Armenia can count on for a genuine friendship, based on mutual respect and inter-cultural ties. Iranians (Persians) and Armenians have deeply rooted cultural ties with each other. In terms of history, they can be called cousins.
    Both of them having Zoroastrian roots and very similar cultural identities.
