TEHRAN, Oct. 31 (Mehr News Agency) – The head of the Iran-Armenia Joint
Chamber of Commerce and Industries announced here on Wednesday said that the two
sides’ trade volume will soar to one billion dollars.
Talking to MNA, Leon Aharonian put the current
trade volume at over $200 million, of which $160 million is related to Iran’s
exports and $40 million to Armenia’s exports.
Referring to Iran’s gas exports and energy
