TEHRAN (ISNA)- Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said the country is ready to play a positive role in regional developments to establish peace and friendship in the region.

'Iran hope that the region turns out to be the region of peace, friendship and cooperation among all regional states, and Iran would withhold no effort for materialization of the issue,' Zarif said in a joint press conference with his visiting Armenian counterpart Edward Nalbandian here in Tehran on Monday.

'One more time I announce Iran's readiness for helping peace and stability in the region. We are ready to reach peace, stability and cooperation in a region which does not need conflict and tension.'

Nalbandian, for his part, said his country is ready for mutual cooperation with Iran in all fields.

He also said that Iran and Armenia could work further on transportation, energy, education and culture.

Armenian Foreign Minister also hailed the results of Geneva talks between Iran and G5+1, and said, 'Armenia was one of the countries hailing the outcomes of Geneva negotiations. We hope that we can get desirable results by useful efforts of the two sides.'
