YEREVAN, July 11 (Itar-Tass) — Russia’s Federation Council delegation led by speaker Valentina Matviyenko will visit Yerevan on Wednesday to discuss stronger strategic partnership and development of interparliamentary relations.
Matviyenko is expected to meet with Armenia’s President Serzh Sargsyan and Catholicos of All Armenians Garegin II and lay flowers at the memorial to the 1915 Armenian genocide victims in the Ottoman Empire.
The two countries’ parliamentarians plan to focus on deeper cooperation at the parliamentary level, including modernization of the contractual framework of Russian-Armenian interstate relations, harmonization of national legislations within the framework of the CIS and the Collective Security Treaty Organization.
They will also consider new forms of cooperation in the context of integration processes on the post-Soviet space.
“Relations of Russia and Armenia are characterized by a high level and intensity of interparliamentary contacts, which play a significant role in maintaining close relations of partnership between the two countries,” Matviyenko said on the eve of her visit to Yerevan.
Moscow and Yerevan are “interested in further strengthening and enhancing interparliamentary cooperation,” she said.
