The President said, in particular, in his message:
“Over these years, Armenia has made significant progress in its economic and social development and strengthened its authority on the international stage. We are happy to see the strong new foundation supporting the traditionally friendly ties between Russia and Armenia – ties that reach deep back into history.
Today, we are successfully developing multifaceted relations in all of the different areas in which we work together as partners and allies. We are making a common effort to open up new opportunities for trade and economic, investment, humanitarian, and other forms of cooperation. I hope that your upcoming visit to Russia in October this year will give a big boost to continued all-round development of our cooperation.
I am sure that our fruitful political dialogue and coordinated work within the integration organisations in the Commonwealth of Independent States are in the long-term interests of the Russian and Armenian peoples and play an important part in dynamically developing the entire spectrum of our bilateral relations and reinforcing security and stability in the Trans-Caucasus.”
