ArmInfo. The visit of Lebanese President Michel Aun to Armenia will undoubtedly give a new impetus to the Armenian-Lebanese friendly relations intertwined with solid historical contacts. As the press service of the Armenian leader reports, Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan announced this on February 22 during a joint briefing with Aoun.

He stated that the conversation with the Lebanese colleague was held in a warm atmosphere, in tune with the spirit of the Armenian-Lebanese friendly relations. "Substantive discussions took place on the entire agenda of cooperation, and our mutual commitment to continue to deepen and strengthen our multi-sectoral cooperation based on mutual trust was confirmed.In spite of the fact that last year our diplomatic relations have crossed a quarter of a century, the friendship between our peoples has a long history, in which the Armenian community of Lebanon plays a special role.We are pleased with the mutual recognition that during these years we managed to give our friendship a new quality, with forming strong contacts of cooperation in political, trade-economic, cultural and other spheres, "Sargsyan said.

According to the Armenian leader, the importance of maintaining political dialogue at a high level was stressed as an important stimulator of mutually beneficial cooperation in all spheres; development of further interparliamentary cooperation, especially taking into account the fact that in April Armenia will complete the transition to a parliamentary form of government. "In the development of bilateral relations, we stressed the importance of the economic component, we appreciate the permanent expansion of Lebanese investments in the Armenian economy." The Lebanese presence in Armenia is tangible in the sphere of banking services, agriculture and a number of other areas, and we are striving for an even greater expansion of these achievements. To make efforts in the direction of increasing the volume of mutual trade turnover.In fact, there is practically all the regulatory framework that regulates the economic sphere, which in its turn creates an additional atmosphere of confidence for our entrepreneurs, "Sargsyan said, adding that, on the whole, about 50 documents signed between the two countries create a solid basis for mutually beneficial cooperation in various fields.

The Armenian leader also highly appreciated the interaction with Lebanon at international venues, and mutual support on issues of vital importance. At the same time, the Armenian leader informed about the latest developments in the Nagorno-Karabakh settlement. "Our unshakable conviction that there can not be any solution to the problem that will somehow undermine the right of the people of Artsakh to live freely and safely in their historic homeland." In this connection, we agreed with my colleague that, whatever it was the resolution of this conflict must be based on the right of the people of Artsakh to live freely in their historical land.I also would like to say that we agreed on the question of Jerusalem that the most important is the negotiation process and the use of force such questions do not They can be solved, "Sargsyan said.

At the same time, the Armenian leader stressed that more than 100 years have passed since the Armenian Genocide, but there are historical events and feelings of gratitude that do not have a statute of limitations. "I expressed my gratitude to the Lebanese people and the authorities for taking this opportunity to live and create with the open arms of our refugees during this cruel period of our history, thank you also for the fact that Lebanon is still with us in the matter of conviction and preventing this crime, "the Armenian leader said.

At the same time, he expressed regret, by the fact that in the Middle East, in particular, in Syria, the international community continues to be an eyewitness of crimes against humanity. "From this point of view, we attach importance to the practical and effective contribution of Lebanon to the fight against terrorism and radicalism, and we highly appreciate the humanitarian assistance provided to the Syrians during these years." Armenia also extended a feasible hand to help our Syrian brothers and sisters. , that Armenia has made its modest contribution to the maintenance of stability and security in Lebanon by the participation of Armenian peacekeepers in the UNIFIL mission in the south of the country. The President of Lebanon agreed to continue the arm . But the Lebanese-active contacts and promote cooperation in all fields of mutual interest are also glad that the head of Lebanon has accepted an invitation to visit Yerevan in the fall to attend a summit of the OIF ", - concluded the head of the RA.
