US Congressman: US is determined to assist Armenia in eradicating  corruption and getting rid of pressure from Russia

ArmInfo.The US is determined to assist Armenia in eradicating corruption and getting  rid of pressure from Russia. US Congressman Jackie Spir Kanchelian stated this in a conversation with ArmInfo correspondent.

 "I believe that we will be able to help you overcome these problems,  because we really want this, and are determined to implement  effective steps in this direction," the Congressman said.

 In the matter of eradicating corruption, the US Congressman stressed  the importance of ensuring the realizability of the country's  anti-corruption legislation and changing the mentality.

 As for the Russian pressure, Kanchelian noted that Armenia is 80%  volatile from Russia, which puts the republic as a whole in a  dependent position from the Russian Federation. To remedy the  situation, she said, the United States will assist Armenia in  creating alternative energy sources.

 It should be noted that a meeting of the Armenian-American  friendship group was held in Yerevan.  During the meeting, the issues  of opening a direct Yerevan-New York air flight, avoidance of double  taxation, the settlement of the Karabakh problem, as well as  providing financial assistance to Armenia, as a host country of the  Syrian refugees, were discussed.
