Pashinyan says appreciates Canada's support for Armenian democracy

PanARMENIAN.Net - Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan sent a congratulatory message to the Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau on Canada Day and thanked him for his support for Armenian democracy.

"Armenia appreciates the development of relations with Canada and is determined to deepen them as much as possible," Pashinyan Friday, July 1.

"The efforts of the Government of Canada and personally your efforts to support the accomplishment of democracy in the Republic of Armenia, one of the brightest manifestations of which was the visit of Special Envoy to Europe Stéphane Dion to Yerevan, are greatly appreciated. The recommendations in the comprehensive report published based on the results of that visit can serve as a roadmap for the effective development of relations between our countries."

Foreign Affairs Minister Melanie Joly announced earlier that Canada will be opening a new embassy in Armenia. In a press release, Joly described the goal of putting a Canadian ambassador in Armenia as “allowing for stronger bilateral ties and increased Canadian support for Armenian democracy.”
