Armenia to provide humanitarian aid to flood victims in Iran
Armenia will provide assistance to Iranian citizens affected by the flood. The head of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of Armenia Felix Tsolakyan stated this at the government session on Friday.
The number of flood victims in the provinces of Iran has already reached 44 people. Because of the disaster in some regions of the country, roads are unavailable, infrastructure and buildings are damaged, and there are problems with transport communication.
The Emergency Situations Minister said that he had met with the Iranian ambassador to Armenia the day before. The parties agreed to provide assistance to the Iranian side.
"We are sending assistance through the Armenian-Russian humanitarian response center. We will also send technical equipment, vehicles, rescue groups," - Tsolakyan added.
For efficiency, the minister proposed to settle the issue by a decision not by the government, but by the Armenian prime minister.
