"There are two Hay Dat offices in Iran. One is in Tehran and the other is in Nor-Jugha" Derenik Melikyan, editor of Aliq Tehran-based Armenian-language newspaper, told a PanARMENIAN.Net reporter.
"We organize April evenings, seminars on genocide studies, including the Armenian Genocide. Books dedicated to Armenian-Iranian, Turkish-Iranian and Armenian-Turkish relations are published," he said.

"Iran has tensed relations with Turkey and, moreover, with Azerbaijan. Tehran doesn’t welcome Baku’s yearning for the Turkic world. Panturanism is inadmissible for Iran. Maybe, this is the reason why it shares the Armenian stance of Karabakh and Genocide. Moreover, thanks to the "NKR" security belt, the Armenian-Iranian border became longer,” Melikyan said.
