In a regional tour of the countries involved in the Nagorno-Karabakh war this week, Araghchi outlined Iran’s proposal for the resolution of the conflict.
In his trip to Yerevan, he visited the Blue Mosque and its different sections, including the courtyard, library, and Husseiniya.
The Blue Mosque is an 18th-century Shia mosque in Yerevan, Armenia.
The mosque was commissioned by Huseyn Ali Khan, the khan of Erivan. It is one of the oldest extant structures in central Yerevan and the most significant structure from the city’s Iranian period. It was the largest of the eight mosques of Yerevan in the 19th century and is today the only active mosque in Armenia.
The mosque was secularized in the 1920s and housed the History Museum of Yerevan for more than five decades. Following Armenia’s independence, the mosque was renovated with the support from the Iranian government and again started operating as a mosque, serving the Iranians residing in Yerevan.
