YEREVAN, February 2. /TASS/. Relations with Russia are a key element in the foreign policy of Armenia, Armenian Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian said on Tuesday summing up the results of last year.
"Strengthening the allied, strategic partnership with Russia continues to occupy a pivotal place in (Armenia’s) foreign policy agenda," he said. Nalbandian recalled that in 2015 the presidents of the two countries had held about a dozen meetings in the bilateral and multilateral formats. During them the agreements of strategic importance were reached in the political, military and technical, science and education, cultural and other areas were reached." The two sides continued intensive visits on the level of parliament speakers, prime ministers, foreign ministers and heads of sectoral ministries.
The minister added that the membership in the Eurasian Economic Union as of January 2014 "stemmed from Armenia’s strategic interests" and "opened up new opportunities for the country’s economic development."
Besides, Armenia assumed the chairmanship of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) in September 2015. The country "continues to act as an initiator and active participant in this association," the Armenian Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Tuesday.
