The Head of the parliament underlined that since the establishment of diplomatic relations firm friendly ties has been formed between the two countries. Touching upon the development of inter-parliamentary cooperation, in this issue the head of the RA legislative body highlighted the role of the Parliamentary Friendship Groups and the activation of the mutual visits.

With regards to the problem of the recognition and condemnation of the Armenian Genocide, the Head of the RA Parliament has noted that our country highly assesses the crucial position of Canada in that issue: The House of Commons adopted a Resolution on recognizing the Armenian Genocide already in 2004, and in April 2015 a Resolution of reaffirming the recognition of the Armenian Genocide and other genocides, as well as declaring a Memorial Day of the Armenian Genocide April 24.

The Head of the RA legislative body emphasized the balanced and impartial position adopted by the authorities of Canada in the settlement of Nagorno Karabakh conflict.

Issues on the effective cooperation with Canada in different spheres and the activities of the Canadian Armenian community were discussed.
