Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan and speaker of the Russian State Duma lower parliament house Sergey Naryshkin discussed international and regional problems, including stability and security in South Caucasus and strategic partnership and allied relations between Russia and Armenia, the press service of the Armenian president said on Monday.
"Inter-parliamentary cooperation plays an important role in strengthening allied relations between Armenia and Russia," Sargsyan and Naryshkin agreed.
