YEREVAN, June 23. /ITAR-TASS/. Foreign Ministers of Russia and Armenia, Sergei Lavrov and Edward Nalbandian, have discussed Yerevan’s participation in Eurasian integration and cooperation within international structures.
“Russia and Armenia maintain strategic partnership that is based on centuries-long friendship, mutual assistance and good-neighborliness. This is an important factor for ensuring stability of our states and maintaining regional stability,” Lavrov said.
“The high-level regular and trust-based dialogue gives an impetus to our multilateral relations. Today we’ve discussed the implementation of the agreements, reached in the course of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s visit to Yerevan last year and at the meeting between our presidents in Moscow on May 8,” he said.
“We’ve coordinated the steps at the bilateral level and within the CSTO and the CIS over the 100th anniversary of World War I and the 70th anniversary of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War,” Lavrov said.
“We praise the work of the intergovernmental commission for trade and economic cooperation. The similar commission for military-technical cooperation operates. Recently the inter-parliamentary commission has met. We expect the Armenian speaker to arrive in Moscow in early July,” he said.
“We believe that the strengthening of inter-parliamentary relations will facilitate further development of cooperation,” Lavrov said.
“Trade turnover between Russia and Armenia increases. The figures, cited by Edward Agvanovich [Nalbandian] — over 10% per year, are serious,” he said.
“Russia’s investments in the Armenian economy reach over $3 billion. Many Russian companies — Gazprom, Russian Railways, VTB, Inter RAO EES and others work in Armenia,” Lavrov said.
