Emmanuelle Macron: France is ready to continue efforts aimed at  expanding close cooperation with friendly Armenia in various spheres

ArmInfo.France is ready to continue efforts aimed at expanding close cooperation with  friendly Armenia in various spheres. On this eve, during a meeting with RA Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, who is in Paris on a working visit, said the French President Emmuel Macron.

As the RA government's press service reports, during the meeting the  French president expressed his conviction that the visit of the head  of state Armenian government will give a new impetus to the further  development and strengthening of friendly relations between the two  countries. Noting that in just a month he will arrive in Armenia on a  state visit, Emmanuel Macron expressed confidence that the summit of  Francophonia will be held in Yerevan at a high level. Expressing  gratitude for the warm welcome, Nikol Pashinyan noted that the  Armenian-French relations are in good hands and will continue to  expand and deepen in the interests of both countries. The Prime  Minister noted that since the establishment of diplomatic relations,  bilateral ties have constantly deepened. He expressed confidence that  they will continue to develop in various fields - at the level of  regular political dialogue, active   interparliamentary interaction,  economic cooperation. The Armenian side also expects the  implementation of joint projects in the cultural, educational,  scientific, medical and other spheres. "I am convinced that our  meeting will give a new quality to our privileged relations based on  centuries-old historical friendship," said Nikol Pashinyan.  The  Prime Minister stressed the importance of holding a summit of  Francophonie in Armenia and added that this is one of the most  important events in Yerevan since independence. The head of  government reaffirmed the commitment of the Armenian authorities to  ensure the success of the summit and expressed confidence that this  will contribute to the further growth of the reputation and influence  of the Francophonie. Nikol Pashinyan attached importance to the  economic forum, which will be held in Yerevan on October 10 as part  of the Francophonie summit and which will be aimed at facilitating  the creation of contacts and interaction between entrepreneurs.

The sides exchanged views on the Karabakh issue and attached  importance to the peaceful settlement of the conflict within the  framework of the format of the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs. Nikol  Pashinyan highly appreciated the efforts of the co-chairing  countries, including France, to ensure peace and stability in the  region. The Prime Minister stressed that Armenia is committed to  continuing negotiations on a peaceful settlement of the conflict.  Emmanuel Macron and Nikol Pashinyan agreed to discuss in more detail  the agenda of the Armenian-French relations during the state visit of  the French President to Armenia.
