“Mr. President, as you’ve already mentioned, these regular visits, also your February meeting with the Secretary of State in Munich and the last year meeting with President Obama in Washington and, of course, my visit to Armenia, prove that relations between our two states are strong,” said James Steinberg.

At the meeting, the parties discussed issues related to regional security and the NK peace process.
