Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Tuesday hailed the "positive and growing" relations between Iran and Armenia, the local satellite Press TV reported.

The two countries must develop their potentials and strengthen bilateral cooperation in different areas, Ahmadinejad said during a meeting with the visiting Armenian Prime Minister Tigran Sargsyan in Tehran.

"Bolstering trade cooperation, implementation of different projects on transportation, energy, and joint investment will create links between regional nations," Iranian president was quoted as saying.

For his part, the Armenian Prime Minister said Tehran and Yerevan have a common stance on mutual and regional issues.

Armenia welcomes more economic, political and cultural ties with Iran, said Sargsyan.

Heading a politico-economic delegation from Armenia's chamber of commerce, Sargsyan arrived in Tehran on Monday for major economic talks.
