President Armen Sarkissian met with Prime Minister Nikol Pashinian

President Armen Sarkissian today at the Presidential Palace had a meeting with Prime Minister Nikol Pashinian.

President Armen Sarkissian: “Mr. Prime Minister, I am glad to see you again. Our traditional meetings continue. Before starting our conversation, I would like to congratulate you since I am aware that your visit to the Islamic Republic of Iran was very successful. I would be glad to learn the details of the visit. In any case, comments, which I hear in our country and from abroad from some of my friends, have been positive.”

Prime Minister Pashinian: “Thank you, Mr. President. It is true that our working meetings are taking place regularly, and it is very important that we regularly share the information which we accumulate during various contacts, in the process of working activities. And of course, to discuss the current tasks. Yes, I view the visit to the Islamic Republic of Iran as very important and very successful. I am to leave on official visit to Brussels on Monday to discuss with our EU partners our future steps. Our foreign agenda for the coming period of time is rather rich. This year we are also presiding over at the Eurasian Economic Union, and one of the intergovernmental sessions of its Council will take place in Yerevan. A session of the Supreme Council will also take place in Yerevan. It is certainly important to employ the entire foreign policy agenda to serve the objectives of our economic revolution. I am also aware that you also have had meetings which align with this logic. It is also important to juxtapose this information to make the future implementation of the agreements productive to its utmost.”

President Armen Sarkissian: “Mr. Prime Minister, I also have many things to discuss with you. You are certainly aware but I nevertheless would like to share some additional details especially regarding my latest two visits: One to France, where the general assembly dedicated to the 90th anniversary of the AGBU took place, which I attended and during which the Organization made some structural changes. The AGBU is one of our most important national Diaspora organizations. In the process, in Paris I took the opportunity to hold meetings in the framework, which we have been discussing for a while, to assist Armenia’s economic development and new technologies. Meetings were held with the French major companies Thales, Dassault, and others. My next visit was to Munich to the Security Conference during which, as you know, a number of political meetings took place. Besides, I held meetings at the Heidelberg University, Munich Technical University, Max Planck Institute. These meetings too, were directed at making Armenia a country of modern technologies and at promoting a rapid economic growth of our country. Thus, we have plenty to discuss.”
