ArmInfo.The last visits of the highest Armenian state officials to Washington are evidence of the gradually emerging multi-vector foreign policy of the Armenian policy, which I personally assess positively. Director of the Analytical Centre on Globalization and Regional Cooperation Stepan Grigoryan expressed a similar opinion to ArmInfo.
In recent days, Speaker of the National Assembly of Armenia Ararat Mirzoyan, Deputy Prime Minister Tigran Avinyan and Foreign Minister Zohrab Mnatsakanyan visited the US at the same time. Despite being in the United States at the same time, they all participate in various events and forums.
" It is precisely this multi-vector relationship with partners and allies that we have lacked in recent years. And today, with the new authorities, such visits and discussions seem to be a necessary and inseparable part, developed step by step by the multi-vector policy of the new authorities of Armenia. It is extremely important that our country is not limited to Europe or the United States. The recent visit of Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan to China and, most importantly, the agreements reached in Beijing demonstrated another important direction of the Armenian multi-vector policy ", he stressed.
In this light, the relationship between Armenia and the United States, according to political analyst, looked quite passive, at least in recent months. In particular, there was practically no agenda between Yerevan and Washington, there were very few areas and areas in which some kind of cooperation took place. In this light, the political analyst considers the recent visits of the Speaker of the Armenian Parliament and members of the government to the United States in the context of Yerevan's attempts to form its own agenda of relations with Washington.
"There are a lot of points and questions within the framework of the Armenian-American agenda. Let's say, there are quite a few today. There are both traditional and completely new issues that have arisen recently; for example, the situation around Iran's neighbor with Armenia. We need to understand how periodic toughening of the US sanctions against Iran will affect Armenia. And, of course, to make it one of the issues on our agenda with the Americans, "concluded Grigoryan.
