Excerpts from Serzh Sargsyan’s address at the consultations with the senior staff of the RA Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the heads of the Armenian diplomatic missions abroad
Ladies and Gentlemen, I believe it would be redundant to speak about the importance of these meetings for holding comprehensive discussions on the issues facing the Armenian foreign policy and steps to deal with them. I am confident that these meetings indisputably enhance the efficiency of Armenia’s diplomatic service. However, before addressing other issues, I would like to speak about the most significant jubilee to be celebrated this year – the 20th anniversary of Armenia’s...

Address of President Serzh Sargsyan on the Day of Remembrance of the Victims of the Armenian Genocide

The true scope and depth of the tragedy is known only to us, and every Armenian, in any corner of...

President Serzh Sargsyan’s remarks at the meeting on the priorities of the economic policy
I have invited you today so that we together adjust our objectives. It is not about reviewing our previous programs or indices set by the budget. The work is underway to meet these goals; we should make that work more efficient and display a more principled approach. I am talking about setting new priorities under current conditions, necessitated by the external negative impulses. It’s been a difficult winter, difficult first of all from the social point of view. Reduced capabilities of...
