YEREVAN, May 9. /TASS/. Armenia’s newly-elected Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan hopes to discuss next week with Russian President Vladimir Putin a host of issues regarding strategic and bilateral relations as well as the development of integration processes, a statement from the Armenian premier’s press office stated.

Russian President Putin and Armenian Prime Minister Pashinyan held a telephone conversation discussing a number of issues, according to the statement.

"They both expressed readiness to continue with efforts aimed at development of the strategic and allied relations between Armenia and Russia as well as to promote further integrational processes," the statement said.

"Both sides stated that they will be provided with an opportunity to discuss all of the above issues during the session of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council in Sochi slated for March 14," the statement added.

The session of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council, the highest supranational authority of the Eurasian Economic Union, in which Russian leader Putin will take place, will be held in Sochi on May 14.

The parliament of Armenia elected opposition leader Pashinyan as the country’s new prime minister on Tuesday.

Pashinyan, who was the sole candidate for the prime minister’s seat, was elected by the majority of 59 votes in the parliament, while 42 votes were cast against his candidacy.

The predecessor of the new prime minister, Serzh Sargsyan, resigned earlier in the month amid mass protests of the opposition supporters across the country.
