In a letter addressed to President Hassan Rohani, His Holiness Aram I condemned the recent attacks on the parliament building and the mausoleum of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khmeini, and described them as “as an evil that aims at destroying all moral, spiritual and ethical values of mutual respect and trust.” The Catholicos wrote that “nations, governments and religions should join to counter this common evil.” He concluded by expressing solidarity with the people of Iran in the name of the Armenian community of Iran, which has been living side by side with the Iranian people in mutual respect for centuries.
