"The Armenian-Russian allied and friendly relations have a solid foundation, and bilateral cooperation is developing steadily in all areas," the prime minister said while receiving Russian Ambassador, Ivan Volynkin.
"Russia is Armenia’s main economic partner," Karapetyan noted. He pointed to "the importance of further development and expansion of trade and economic cooperation between the two countries." The premier confirmed that "the Armenian government is ready to take necessary steps in this direction," all the more so because "there is a huge potential for the implementation of new programs, constant growth in the volume of trade."
