/PanARMENIAN.Net/ Speaking at inaugural ceremony of a conference
held by Iranian and Armenian tradesmen, Iran's Ambassador to Yerevan
Ali-Reza Haqiqian said that the number of Iranian students in Armenian
education institutions recently increased from 200 to 1400. During
the study period Iranian students encounter many social problems. The
Iranian Embassy in Armenia tries to support them, organizing cultural
programs, however it does not solve all their problems. Besides,
when graduated they have the problem of low evaluations of Armenian
diplomas. Thereupon Haqiqian stated, "Iranian families should not
send their children to continue studies in Armenia if possible." He
reported that the commercial and economic relations between Iran and
Armenia are at a high level and these continue developing. The Iranian
Embassy in Armenia is ready to provide the necessary information about
the economy, legislation, culture and politics in Armenia to Iranian
businessmen. At that he noted that cases of not ailing competition were
registered among Iranian entrepreneurs in Armenia, which has a negative
impact upon the bilateral trade and economic relations, Irna reported.
