Welcoming the guests, Alen Simonyan noted that Armenia attaches great importance to relations with Argentina based on mutual respect and common values.
He particularly underscored the role of bilateral inter-parliamentary cooperation, stressing that for the first time it became possible for the delegation of the two Chambers of Parliament of Argentina, the delegation of Friendship Groups with Armenia to visit Armenia.
The parties spoke about the Armenian community in Argentina, which is a special bridge in Armenia-Argentin bilateral relations.
Reference was made to multi-sectoral cooperation with Argentina. The RA NA President mentioned that Armenia creates a good opportunity for economic exchanges as a EAEU member state and can be an additional transit point to the Eurasian market, and the EAEU-MERCOSUR interaction can open new doors of cooperation.
