President Sargsyan says Armenian-Russian strategic partnership important

PanARMENIAN.Net - Armenia highly assesses Armenian-Russian strategic partnership, President Serzh Sargsyan said.

“Current implementation of the consistent policy aiming to deepen Russian-Armenian relations are conditioned by friendly historic ties between the two nations,” presidential press service quoted RA leader as saying during a meeting with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin.

“This is our first meeting since Russian presidential elections. We stand ready to strengthen our political dialogue,” President Sargsyan said.

“Despite the post-crisis period, the trade turnover between the two countries hit billion. However, I believe doubling and even tripling the number in the years to come a possible step to take,” he said, adding that the humanitarian agreement signed a few months ago contributes to bilateral cooperation.

President Sargsyan further hailed Russian-Armenian military-technical cooperation, saying, “Russian military base deployment terms in Armenia were extended in 2010, which was in our country’s security interests.”

He further said that Armenia will host CSTO maneuvers in fall.
