On April 20, the President of Armenia Serzh Sargsyan, who arrived to Moscow on a short working visit, met with the President of the Russian Federation Dmitri Medvedev. This is the third meeting of the two leaders this year.

Welcoming his Armenian colleague, Dmitri Medvedev said, “We meet today in the framework of our regular meetings with the Armenian side to discuss the current situation, bilateral relations, regional and international issues.

The very fact that we do it with enviable frequency and regularity is very important for the preservation of the high level of trust and mutual understanding present between our two countries, spirit of a strategic partnership, which has always, and I hope will always, distinguish the relations of our two countries.”

President Sargsyan thanked for the invitation and noted that, “Since our last meeting, our Foreign Ministries, other structures and the intergovernmental commission have been working vigorously.”

Serzh Sargsyan assessed the meeting with the President of the RF as a good opportunity to discuss issues of the bilateral agenda, regional security, the Armenian-Turkish normalization process, and the NK peace process.

President Sargsyan congratulated President Medvedev on the opening in Yerevan of an efficient science and innovation center, assessing it as an important step.

Serzh Sargsyan also informed that the Armenian government is working closely with the Embassy of the Russian Federation for the restoration in our country of the monument dedicated to the Russian officers who fell in the Armenian-Turkish war.

President Sargsyan once again thanked the President of Russia for providing Armenia one year ago with a 500mln USD loan, underscoring that the positive results of the loan have already become noticeable, “in the first quarter of this year we registered 5.5 percent economic growth.”

The Presidents of Armenia and the Russian Federation discussed issues of bilateral agenda and exchanged views on regional and international developments.

Presidents Sargsyan and Medvedev agreed to continue dialogue on all levels, including during the forthcoming visit of the President of Russia to Armenia.
