Russian First Deputy Prime Minister Sergei Ivanov will visit Armenia.

He arrives in Yerevan for a two-day working visit on Wednesday.

"We plan discussing matters of investment cooperation, nuclear energy,
the implementation of gas and energy accords with President Robert
Kocharian and Prime Minister Serzh Sarkisian. We shall make a special
accent on the transport infrastructure, in particular the Caucasus-Poti
ferry service," Ivanov said at the government’s meeting in the Kremlin
on Monday.

He said that a new ferry was recently bought that would be put in
service soon.

"At last we shall establish a regular and extensive transport
connection with Armenia," Ivanov said.

"We also plan discussing questions of military technical cooperation,"
he added.

The visit programme includes Ivanov’s visit to a school in which
children of Russian military servicemen study, an official of the
Russian embassy in Armenia told ITAR-TASS.
