ArmInfo. When addressing the mass media following the Armenian- Russian talks in Moscow, Armenian Prime Minister Karen Karapetyan expressed his content with the talks and invited his Russian counterpart Dmitry Medvedev to pay an official visit to Yerevan.
The press office of the Armenian Government quotes Karen Karapetyan as saying, "I wish to once again express my gratitude for the invitation to visit Moscow and the warm welcome shown to our delegation, as well as for a constructive and friendly meeting. We do not want to make a secret of the fact that this visit to Moscow is a visit paid to a friendly, fraternal and allied country. I would like to state sincerely, without unnecessary diplomacy that we are very much satisfied with today's negotiations, including their outcome and those instructions given to respective sides in terms of future cooperation.
We discussed with the Russian Premier the results of the work done so far. We stated that our bilateral relations are at a very high level. At the same time, I believe everyone will agree with me that our relations have great development potentials. We discussed a number of directions of how to push ahead with the Russian-Armenian relations, and I think that we were able to outline the development vectors and specific programs.
As to the documents signed today, I think they will go a long way toward fostering cultural and humanitarian ties between our two countries. I think Armenia is underestimated by Russian citizens as a country of tourism. We expect to bring about serious changes in the sphere of tourism this year.
Dmitry Anatolevich, taking the opportunity, I would like to invite you to pay an official visit to Yerevan, since I believe that the vectors you mentioned have a great future. I am convinced that everything will be fine. Thank you."
