As the press service of the parliament told ArmInfo, Babloyan  also expressed gratitude to the German government for the constant  assistance to Armenia in the implementation of numerous effective  programs in the republic. Highly appreciating the steps taken by  Germany in important issues for Armenia, the head of the legislative  body of Armenia expressed gratitude to the Bundestag for adopting the  resolution on recognition and condemnation of the Armenian Genocide.

The NA Chairman  noted that Armenia, as a country transferred to the  parliamentary form of government, closely follows the elections of  the German Bundestag, which has extensive experience of parliamentary  government. Touching upon regional problems, Babloyan stressed the  importance of the reforms in Armenia and noted: "The carriers of  European values and the countries that do not carry them can not be  on the same plane." Armenia, unlike some neighboring countries, has  made serious progress in matters of democracy, the absence in our  country of political persecution, fair and transparent elections,  approaches to freedom of speech and the protection of human rights.  "At the same time, the NA Speaker highly assessed the Ambassador's  activity and expressed his gratitude to the first Ambassador of  Germany in Armenia, who in due time contributed to the development of  children's hematology in our country.In turn, Kisler assured the  speaker of the National Assembly that he will continue to promote the  development and deepening of ties between friendly countries. 

At the same time, the Ambassador stressed the importance of  cooperation with the National Assembly of the Republic of Armenia and  especially highlighted the joint work of the German International  Cooperation Society (GIZ) and the NA Standing Committee on  Financial-Credit and Budgetary Affairs, whose positive results are  evident. Kisler expressed the hope that the newly elected parliament  would cooperate with its German counterparts equally productively.

Referring to the adoption of the resolution on recognition and  condemnation of the Armenian Genocide by the Bundestag, the  ambassador noted in particular: "By adopting this resolution, the  Bundestag took an important step, and I feel the attitude of the  Armenian people towards this step." The diplomat also touched on the   Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, and stressed that Germany excludes a  military solution to the conflict. The Ambassador presented to the  speaker of the National Assembly his observations on the reforms of  recent years in Armenia and noted that progress is obvious - unlike  other post-Soviet countries. According to the diplomat, in Armenia,  politicians are ready to develop the country through reforms.
