Armenian PM expects relations with Russian Federation to improve

OSCE Secretary General congratulates Nikol Pashinyan

Pashinyan stressed that the protest actions in Armenia were due exclusively to internal problems of the country, and protesters did not make any demands concerning the country's foreign policy.

According to Oxu.Az, the due statement came from Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, commenting on United States sanctions against the products of the Russian military-industrial complex in his interview to "Russia 24" TV channel.

He expressed willingness to work with Pashinyan to continuously lift bilateral ties to higher levels.

On Monday, Nikol Pashinyan will attend the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council's session.

Russian President Vladimir Putin expects that under the new Armenian government relations between Moscow and Yerevan will continue to develop just as robustly as before, TASS reports.

"I am calling on all Armenian and Russian businessmen from Sochi and Russia to travel to Armenia, make investments and create jobs", he said.

On May 8th, Nikol Pashinyan was elected Prime Minister of Armenia with a parliamentary vote of 59 to 42.

"I am sure that Armenian-Russian relations will improve", Pashinyan added.

On April 13, mass protests against the election of former President Serzh Sargsyan as prime minister began in Armenia, which were led by opposition leader Pashinyan.

According to the press statement of the Armenian government, the two PMs have agreed to meet in the near future.
