TEHRAN, Jul. 10 (MNA) – The Prime Minister of the Republic of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan, had a telephone conversation with the newly elected President of Iran, Masoud Pezeshkian.

The Prime Minister of Armenia congratulated the President of Iran on his victory in the elections and wished him an effective tenure.

The interlocutors reaffirmed their commitment to the agreements previously reached at the interstate level.  The parties agreed to meet at an upcoming opportunity.

Veteran parliamentarian Masoud Pezeshkian has won Iran's runoff presidential vote, the interior ministry says, bringing a conclusion to a tight race that saw voters swell polling stations on Friday.

Pezeshkian received more than 16 million votes against former nuclear negotiator Saeed Jalili with more than 13 million out of over 30 million votes cast, electoral authorities said.

"By gaining a majority of the votes cast on Friday, Pezeshkian has become Iran's next president," the interior ministry said.

The runoff on Friday followed a June 28 ballot in a snap election to find a successor to President Ebrahim Raeisi who lost his life with his foreign minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian and others in a helicopter crash in northwest Iran.

Pezeshkian originally ran against a field of five candidates last week, winning the largest number of votes but falling short of a majority which sent him and Jalili to a second round.
