ArmInfo. The Arabian world, and first the Emirates, possess huge investments potential, President of Armenia Serzh Sargsyan stated in his interview to Sky news Arabia.
As Armenian President said, there are relations which it is impossible to speak about without warmth, one of them being the Armenian-Arabic relations and also our relations with the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
"Armenians and Arabs know each other; they have cooperated for many years, and it is no coincidence that we oftentimes find historical information about the Armenian people in the works of Arab authors and vice versa. The interstate relations established after the independence of Armenia are very stable, developing the way we wish,"Sargsyan said. He also added: "Thus, I think it will be very correct to distinguish between these two platforms, namely public and interstate ones. It should be noted that our interstate relations are built on the basis of the strong friendship of our peoples," Sargsyan stated. Referring to historical chronicles, in this context, many examples can be cited from history. "But I would like to cite only one example: during the Genocide committed in the Ottoman Empire in 1915 - one of the most tragic pages of the Armenian people - and generally before and after that, our Arab sisters and brothers manifested themselves from many positive sides, every time seeking to save Armenians' lives. Apart form this, they gave an opportunity to Armenians to settle in their country, at the same time encouraging their development.We will always be grateful for this. Our relations are developing very well now too."
The President also noted that the Arab world and first of all the Emirates have huge investment potential. "We have a potential for 'absorbing' investments. And the result of uniting these potentials and linking them closely with each other can be very positive.
Talking about the results of cooperation, Sargsyan said:We already have the first results. I am very glad about the agreements reached today on holding a large investment meeting in the United Emirates in near future so that the Arab investors can see the investment privileges of Armenia. We have also reached a number of various other agreements today on working for our peoples' friendship,"Sargsyan noted. To remind, President of Armenia Serzh Sargsyan on November 9 left with an official visit for United Arabian Emirates. There is a number of bilateral documents aimed at the partnership improvement, to be signed by results of this visit
