Commenting on Putin-Pashinyan meeting in Moscow, Aram Safaryan told ARMENPRESS that bilateral military-political and military-technical relations have never been so interconnected, coordinated and deep-rooted as they have been in the recent months.
- Mr. Safaryan, caretaker Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan paid a working visit to Moscow on July 7, where he met with the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin. This was his first foreign visit after the snap parliamentary elections. The Russian President congratulated Nikol Pashinyan on the election results. The two leaders touched upon the Armenian-Russian relations, the Nagorno Karabakh issue, the border situation, the issue of prisoners of war, the supply of Russian vaccines, etc. In your opinion, what was the main purpose of the visit, what results can be expected after this meeting, especially on security and POWs issues?
- Thank you. This visit, as a political event, has several messages. The first message is that the caretaker Prime Minister of the Republic of Armenia, soon the Prime Minister, pays his first foreign visit to Moscow. This shows the place of the Russian Federation, official Moscow in the political realities of Armenia, as well as shows how the legitimately elected government of Armenia highlights building multifaceted relations with its strategic ally, ready to start that process immediately after the elections.
Speaking about the second message, Aram Safaryan noted that the meeting shows that Russia, as Armenia's key military-political partner and security guarantor, is interested in Armenia'...
