President Sargsyan's last visit to Moscow

Today, Russian President Vladimir Putin met with his Armenian counterpart Serzh Sargsyan, who arrived in Moscow on an official visit. The presidents discussed key issues of bilateral cooperation and prospects for the development of integration cooperation in the Eurasian space.

Vladimir Putin recalled that April 3 will mark the 25th anniversary of establishing diplomatic ties between the two countries. "Over these years, we reached truly allied relations between Russia and Armenia - in the full sense of the word," he said. "We actively cooperate in almost all areas in international organizations, including those established in the post-Soviet space, and universal international organizations," the Russian president noted.

"Over the years, many events have taken place, but the relations between Armenia and Russia have always been built on the basis of very deep roots that go back centuries," the Kremlin press service quotes him. "And it continues at the present stage of development," Putin said.

The Russian president drew attention to the fact that the meeting was "against the backdrop of preparations for major domestic political events in Armenia: the elections to the parliament, the National Assembly are scheduled for April 2 , and it is also connected with the constitutional reform." "The process, apparently, is not easy, but I am confident that under your leadership Armenia will pass this stage of its development," Putin said addressing Sargsyan.

The Armenian President, in turn, pointed out that the interaction and cooperation between Moscow and Yerevan are "continuously enriched, new issues are emerging." "Regular meetings at the highest level allow to sum up the work done for a specific period and, of course, outline the main areas of our future cooperation," he added.

According to Sargsyan, 25 years since establishing diplomatic ties "have become a period of close cooperation." "We have true allied relations," the Armenian President said.

The parliamentary elections will be held in Armenia on April 2, after which the form of government will change - the power in the republic will be passed from the president to the parliament and the government.
