President of the Republic of Armenia Vahagn Khachaturyan received the delegation led by the Speaker of the Parliament of the Republic of Slovenia Urška Klakočar Zupančič.

In his welcome remarks, the President noted, "I attach great importance to such visits and meetings. In fact, high-level visits only promote the development of relations between countries. Both of our countries are parliamentary therefore such visits become more essential. In this regard, it is also very important that the Armenia-Slovenia friendship group was established in the Parliament of Slovenia in 2022. I am convinced that due to this cooperation, our relations will reach a new level of development.

I am sure that your visit is rich in its content and aimed at the development of relations between our two countries. I wish you success in that matter."

Expressing gratitude for the reception, Urška Klakočar Zupančič noted: "It is a great privilege to be here and to be hosted by you. Before coming here, I had a very productive meeting with the President of the National Assembly. I am very delighted to be in Armenia. Our countries have a number of shared features. Both countries are post-socialist, went through transition stages, we are also small nations.

This morning I familiarized myself with the tragic pages of your history, the Genocide, and I visited the memorial of the victims of the Armenian Genocide. I believe it is essential that people visit such memorials and pay tribute. It is important that we remember, never forget such tragedies so that they never happen again."

During the meeting, President Vahagn Khachaturyan presented details on regional developments, the humanitarian crisis in Nagorno-Karabakh caused by Azerbaijan's blockade of the Lachin Corridor, and the essence of the Karabakh conflict.

During the discussion, the sides highlighted the close cooperation between Slovenia and Armenia on the international platforms and the sustained development of parliamentary diplomacy.

Ideas were exchanged on full exercise of the existing potential for mutually beneficial cooperation between the two countries in trade, economy, culture, education, high technology and other fields.
