YEREVAN, December 02. /ITAR-TASS/. Morden Armenian-Russian relations are relations of alliance, strategic partnership and dynamically developing cooperation, said Armenian Prime Minister Tigran Sargsyan who is co-chair of the intergovernmental economic cooperation commission with Russia. He spoke on Monday at a ceremony of opening of a monument to Russian-Armenian friendship that was attended by Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan.
“Truly, modern Armenian-Russian relations are special,” the prime minister stated. “They are not simply relations of alliance, strategic partnership and dynamically developing co-operation.” Relations with Russia “cannot be characterized by simple quantitative data,” Sargsyan stressed. “Our relations are bonded by mutual support and centuries-old friendship, they are based on common values,” he said.
“Because of this, they have stood the test of time, were forged on the battlefields of two world wars and managed to resist all the temptations and challenges of the modern world,” said the prime minister.
The One Cross Monument, thanks to the skill of the artist “embodies the deepest emotions and feelings nourished by two our peoples towards each other,” Sargsyan said. This monument is the “epitome of the multifaceted cultural and human ties between Armenia and Russia, the path that we have covered side by side, and the spiritual foundation on which we have built and continue to build our relationship,” he added. “This sculpture, presented to us by remarkable artist Friedrich Sogoyan, is also a kind of message to the next generation, a reminder of the values ·· that unite us, creating a firm foundation for the future,” Sargsyan said.
