Russia and Armenia jointly confront efforts to revise history and the results of World War II, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said at the opening of an exhibition in Yerevan dedicated to the 75th anniversary of the victory in the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945.
"We share common understanding that it is necessary to counter attempt at rewriting history, revising the internationally recognized results of World War II," TASS cited the Russian minister as saying.
Lavrov stressed that relations between Russia and Armenia rested on the basis of common history when the nations lived through difficult times together.
"The centuries-long friendship between Russians and Armenians that has been cemented in war trials is a guarantee of further strengthening of Russian-Armenian strategic partnership and allied relations in the interests of our citizens, in the name of security and stability in the Southern Caucasus and in our entire region," Russia's top diplomat added.
