French envoy to Armenia jokes about Trump's

PanARMENIAN.Net - French ambassador to Armenia Jonathan Lacôte has mimicked U.S. President Donald Trump's comments about the United States' shared history with Italy.

"The United States and Italy are bound together by a shared cultural and political heritage dating back thousands of years to ancient Rome," Trump said.

Lacôte, meanwhile, shared the story on Facebook, with the caption: "And, as Yerevan celebrates the 2801st anniversary of its foundation, its time to remind that France and Armenia have enjoyed 3 millennia of friendly relations since the Urartu Empire."
