PanARMENIAN.Net - First Deputy Prime Minister Ararat Mirzoyan on Friday, June 15 met German ambassador to Armenia Matthias Kiesler to discuss the visa liberalization between Armenia and the European Union.

“Both Mr Ambassador and I stressed the need to deepen relations between Armenia and Germany in bilateral and multilateral formats,” Mirzoyan said in a Facebook post.
