Beginning of the Meeting with President of Armenia Serzh Sargsyan 2008-10-21 16:29:10 Yerevan, Armenia President of Armenia Serzh Sargsyan: Dmitry Anatolyevich! I would like to welcome you once again. Thank you for having accepted the invitation to come. We tried to make sure the weather was also good and we were successful. President of Russia Dmitry Medvedev: Absolutely successful… Serzh Azatovich! I am indeed very pleased to visit Armenia. You have already talked about the weather. I would note that the symbolic action we just took – the opening of Russia Square in Yerevan – certainly provides literal evidence of our friendship, partnership, and the alliance relations between Russia and Armenia. I am confident that during today's talks we will discuss all issues related to our special relationship: economic, educational and cultural, issues related to the current global economic situation, and other international issues – that is, all crucial policies. And then of course we will report to the media on our talks.
