    These troublemakers cannot be allowed to disrupt Iran-Armenia brotherhood. If they were to continue with such provocative and hostile actions against our friends, Armenia’s security forces should immediately arrest and detain them. Armenia cannot be seen as being complicit in the riots and acts of terrorism that have occurred in Tehran. Armenian people stand in solidarity with the Republic of Iran these riots. As President Sarkisian recently said in his meeting with the Supreme Leader, “Our Armenian compatriots fought shoulder to shoulder with their Muslim brothers during the Sacred Defense Era to defend the Islamic Revolution.”
