    Iran will sign the bilateral visa waiver agreement with Armenia, according to an Iranian Foreign Ministry source.

    TEHRAN (Sputnik) — Iran is set to sign a deal on easing visa regime with Armenia’s visiting Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian, an Iranian Foreign Ministry source told Sputnik on Wednesday.

    The Armenian Foreign Ministry said in a statement earlier that the cabinet was to debate the bilateral visa waiver agreement on Thursday.

    "We saw significant progress in Iranian-Armenian relations in the past few months. This decision is a result of lengthy consultations between the two countries," the source said, adding Iran had similar waivers in the pipeline for Russians.

    The agreement will allow Iranians to travel to Armenia without a visa and stay there for 90 days within a 180-day period. Iran will have the same exemption in place for Armenians.
