March 18, 2008
YEREVAN, MARCH 18, NOYAN TAPAN. Charles Lonsdale, the Ambassador
Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the United Kingdom of Great
Britain and Northern Ireland to Armenia, handed his credentials to
RA President Robert Kocharian on March 18. Noyan Tapan was informed
about it by RA President’s Press Office.
Congratulating the diplomat on the occasion of assuming his post,
the RA President expressed confidence that during his activity
the newly elected Ambassador will contribute to deepening of the
Armenian-British relations for even more. According to R. Kocharian,
Armenia is interested in both development of bilateral ties with
Great Britain and in carrying out cooperation within the framework
of the European integration process. He highly estimated the program
assistance of the United Kingdom to the reforms of the government
system, as well as emphasized the active work of the British Council.
Touching upon issues of economic cooperation, R. Kocharian said that
though there are British investments in Armenia, unused possibilities
are still much more, and work should be done in that direction. He
attached importance to formation of the proper legal-contractual
field nececcary for promotion of economic cooperation.
