Today, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the United Mexican States to the Republic of Armenia Norma Bertha Pensado Moreno (residence in Moscow) presented her credentials to RA President Serzh Sargsyan.
Congratulating the Ambassador on appointment, the President of Armenia expressed the hope that through active and fruitful efforts she might help strengthen and develop cooperation between Armenia and Mexico.

The parties next touched upon the ongoing Armenian-Mexican cooperation in international structures. They highlighted the need for expanding and strengthening the legal framework and, in this context, hailed the tangible progress recorded in inter-parliamentary relations over the past few years.
The President of Armenia and the Mexican Ambassador highlighted the unique role of the Armenian community in Mexico, which is not so large, in terms of promoting and strengthening bilateral ties.
