YEREVAN, MARCH 9, ARMENPRESS: President of Armenia Serzh Sargsyan,
who is on an official visit to the Republic of Latvia, put a wreath on
the Freedom Monument after today’s meeting with President of Latvia
Valdis Zatlers. The presidential press service told Armenpress that
afterwards President Serzh Sargsyan visited the Latvian parliament.

The Armenian-Latvian inter-parliamentary cooperation was discussed
during the meeting with Solvita Aboltina, speaker of the Latvian
Saeima (parliament). The speakers emphasized the high level of the
cooperation between the legislative bodies of the two states and
expressed satisfaction about the fact that the friendship groups,
formed in the Armenian and Latvian parliaments, cooperate successfully
and are ready to develop the cooperation, taking into account the
existing potential.

President Serzh Sargsyan mentioned that Armenia is interested in
Latvia’s experience in the cooperation with the European Union and
making the legislation correspond to European standards. Taking into
account the fact that UNSECO has declared Yerevan as 2012 World Book
Capital, and that Riga has been declared as the European Capital of
Culture 2014, Serzh Sargsyan and Solvita Aboltina said they consider
it a good opportunity of developing the cooperation and mutual contacts
between the states.

Within the framework of the official visit, Presidents Serzh Sargsyan
and Valdis Zatlers partook in the opening of the Armenian-Latvian
business conference. An official supper in honor of President Serzh
Sargsyan will be served in the evening on behalf of President of
Latvia Valdis Zatlers and his spouse Lilita Zatlere.
