The message reads, in part:
“Your annual meetings have become a good tradition, offering a platform to national and local government officials, politicians, public figures, entrepreneurs, researchers and experts from the two countries for exchanging best practices and engaging in constructive debates on topical bilateral matters.
Russia and Armenia are united by solid bonds of friendship and strategic partnership. Our two countries established meaningful political dialogue at various levels, and are proactive in promoting trade, economic, scientific and technical, as well as humanitarian cooperation.
Inter-regional cooperation makes an important contribution to strengthening Russian-Armenian relations by facilitating multiple joint projects in infrastructure, social development, culture, sports and other fields.
I am confident that you will come up with new inspiring ideas and proposals at the forum with a view to further stepping up partnership ties between Russia and Armenia, and promoting mutually beneficial integration processes in Eurasia.”
The 7th Russian-Armenian Inter-Regional Forum opened on June 29 in Yerevan.
