On September 27, President Serzh Sargsyan arrived on official visit to France.

After the official ceremony of welcoming, on the first day of the visit the President of Armenia had a working dinner with the members of the French National Assembly.

In his speech, President Serzh Sargsyan underscored that development of relations with France occupies an important place in Armenia’s foreign agenda. He also noted with satisfaction that the Armenian-French cooperation in all areas is getting stronger and deeper. Serzh Sargsyan expressed confidence that meetings and negotiations to be conducted in the framework of his official visit to France and later, during President Sarkozy’s state visit to Armenia will become a new milestone on the road of development of the Armenian-French relations.

Using the opportunity, President Sargsyan once again thanked French parliamentarians for their contribution to the recognition by France of the Armenian Genocide.

President Sargsyan expressed gratitude to the French people for a continually warm attitude toward the Armenian nation manifested in the most difficult moments - extending helping hand to our compatriots who survived the Genocide, sharing their pain and sheltering in their country, providing opportunities to live and create. The President of Armenia expressed confidence that close Armenian-French relations will develop eternally.
