PUTIN: RUSSIAN-ARMENIAN RELATIONS ENTERING NEW LEVEL
March 24 2008
"Despite the hard times in the political process in Armenia,
Armenian-Russian are going to develop at a new level," president of
Russia Vladimir Putin said at a meeting with Armenia’s president-elect
Serzh Sargsyan in Kremlin.
Vladimir Putin said at the meeting that he is informed of complicated
internal political processes in Armenia. Nevertheless, he observed,
Russia hopes that, regardless the course of internal political events
in Armenia, "everything that has been created in the preceding years,
is preserved and developed in the future."
Sargsyan, for his part, said that Armenia needs to further develop
relations with Russia. "We have always appreciated your help to
Armenia," Sargsyan noticed.
To remind, Sargsyan has already met on March 24 with Russia’s
president-elect Dmitry Medvedev. He is also expected to meet with
prime minister Viktor Zubkov and Moscow mayor Yuri Luzhkov.
