YEREVAN, NOVEMBER 17 ARMENPRESS: Yet there are no discussions on the
lifting of vise regime between Armenia and Uruguay the Chairman of
Uruguay House of Representatives Jorge Orrico doesn’t exclude its
possibility. Armenpress reports that Orrico has highlighted that
Uruguayan Minister of Tourism is of Armenian descent. `I believe that
it won’t be difficult to negotiate with him on this suggestion’
jokingly said the Chairman of Uruguay House of Representatives.
Jorge Orrico reminded that everybody loves his country therefore it
would be great if Armenians had a possibility to be closer to Uruguay.
`There you will not be able to find old stories, but you will find
coastal areas and meet friendly people’ Orrico has noted, adding that
as a state Uruguay is 180 years old and when one is talking about the
centuries long Armenian history he is feeling dizzy.
Jorge Orrico has also joked on Armenian churches which are considered
to be `new’ or `young’ when they are already 190 years old.
