RA PREMIER INFORMS SPEAKER OF NORWEGIAN PARLIAMENT OF AUTHORITIES’
POSITION ON ARMENIA-EU RELATIONS

YEREVAN, June 22. /ARKA/. RA Prime Minister Andranik Margaryan
informed Speaker of the Norwegian Parliament Jorgen Kosmo of the
Armenian authorities’ position on the Armenia-EU relations. Premier
Margaryan pointed out the importance of involving the South Caucasian
countries in the New Neighbourhood program, as well as of the European
Commission’s proposal for the development of relations with Armenia by
means of an individual program approved by the EU Council.

Speaking of regional cooperation, Margaryan stated that Armenia agrees
with the EU’s position that conflicts hinder stable development of the
countries of the region. According to him, Armenia’s position is that
the settlement of conflicts is greatly facilitated by various
cooperation programs implemented by all parties without any
preconditions. The RA Premier added that in the context of its
regional policy Armenia is consistently trying to improve its
relations with all its neighbours, including Turkey, without any
preconditions. In his turn, Speaker Kosmo stressed the importance of
international cooperation in meeting present-day challenges,
particularly international terrorism, organized crime and
corruption. He pointed out that as a country of centuries-old
Christian traditions Armenia can make its worthy contribution to the
development of international cooperation. P.T. -0–
