RNA - Betkolia's remarks came in reaction of Trump's recent alleged advocacy for the religious minorities of Iran. 

 

"It is better for Trump and his administration to first find solutions for what they have done and think about religious minorities or sympathize with them," Betkolia said in a statement on Tuesday.

 

According to Fars News Agancy, the Assyrian legislator, also secretary general of Assyrian World Alliance, reiterated that Iran's Assyrian community does not need the US to act as its godfather as the Iranian Assyrians are living in peace and tranquility.

 

In relevant remarks in mid-May 2017, Armenian Archbishop of Tehran and Northern Iran Sebouh Sarkissian underlined that religious minorities in Iran enjoy complete freedom.

 

"The Armenian community has been living peacefully together in Iran for centuries and it has always been a safe place for the Armenians," Sarkissian said.

 

Armenians love Iran and follow up its news carefully irrespective of which place in the world they are living because Iran has always been serving them as a safe haven in hard times.
