In particular, the two states have no disagreements of any kind, Brazil is a powerful state with strong economy, both states produce goods that can be of interest for each other and finally, Armenian community of Brazil is the most important factor linking the two countries. President Sargsyan expressed gratitude to the government of Brazil for providing all the opportunities for our compatriots to settle and develop, preserving their identity and culture. “We are deeply thankful to all those countries which lent a hand in difficult times and created favorable conditions for living and creating,” the President of Armenia stressed.

Ambassador Nikodemos noted with satisfaction that Brazil is the first Latin American country to open embassy in the South Caucasus, particularly, in Armenia and is determined to take practical steps to develop bilateral cooperation.
