Expert: Armenia will have greater strategic role for U.S.

PanARMENIAN.Net - The U.S. and Armenia will continue deepening of bilateral relations after Barack Obama’s re-election, director of Regional Studies Center (RSC) said.

According to Richard Giragosian, Armenia will henceforth boast greater strategic role for the U.S., depending on Russian-American relations also.

The expert further noted that Armenian Americans’ decision to back none of the candidates will affect the community itself, rather than relations with Obama.

“The move will unite, politically mobilize and further strengthen U.S. Armenian lobby,” he told a PanARMENIAN.Net reporter.

U.S. President Barack Obama has been re-elected to a second term, defeating Republican challenger Mitt Romney.

With results in from most states, America's first black president has secured the 270 votes in the electoral college needed to win the race.
