President Serzh Sargsyan received today the Mayor of Lyon, President of the Lyon Urban Community Gerard Collomb.

The President noted that decentralized cooperation plays a great role in the Armenian-French high-level relations. “I am glad that cooperation between Yerevan and Lyon goes on and brings its contribution to the strengthening of friendship between the two countries and two peoples. Armenian-French friendship dates back centuries and our mutual sympathy allows our compatriots to fully integrate into the French society, fully disclose their potential and abilities.

I am confident that cooperation between Yerevan and Lyon will develop through new initiatives and concrete programs,” President Serzh Sargsyan said.

The President of Armenia also expressed gratitude to Mayor Gerard Collomb and members of the Council of Lyon for their consideration and support for the Armenians and Armenian issue. “Our people are grateful to all those who comprehend our pain, who recognize and condemn the Armenian Genocide and fight against its denial,” President Sargsyan underscored.
