ArmInfo. US Ambassador to Armenia Lynn Tracy is proud that since the independence of Armenia, the United States has provided more than $ 2 billion as an assistance to the Armenian side to develop partner relations.
"In 2018, we provided Armenia with $ 26.7 million. However, it's impossible to present the whole assistance that the United States provides to Armenia by just naming figures. USAID implements a number of multi-year programs in Armenia, which now also reach about $ 66 million. I am also proud that the United States was one of the first countries to assist the Armenian side in conducting elections after last year's April-May events, "the diplomat said on Azatutyun Radio, referring to the criticism of the Prime Minister of Armenia against the United States, in particular that Washington did not provide adequate financial assistance to Yerevan after the velvet revolution.
Tracy also stressed that the United States was the only country who contributed to the holding of municipal elections in Yerevan. According to her, the United States has proven its support.
The diplomat also stressed that today negotiations are underway with the Armenian authorities to identify areas in which the United States can assist.
