Mnatsakanyan: The meeting between Pashinyan and Trump and Pompeo is  always on our agenda- at necessary time they will meet 

ArmInfo. Armenian Foreign Minister Zohrab Mnatsakanyan denies rumors that the diplomatic corps of the republic is unable to arrange a meeting between the Prime  Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan and U.S. President Donald Trump  and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on the margins of the UN General  Assembly in September 2019.

As the head of the Armenian Foreign Ministry stated in an interview  with reporters on August 22, a program for Pashinyan's visit to the  United States is being prepared for today. Details of the agenda will  be made public as soon as it is finalized, Zohrabyan noted.

When asked if the Pashinyan-Trump meeting is expected and how  accurate is the information that the Armenian diplomatic corps is not  able to organize a meeting between the head of the Armenian  government and the senior leadership of the United States, the  minister only answered: "They are mistaken."

According to him, there is currently quite active cooperation with  the United States. "There were visits, there were contacts. Let's  evaluate these visits, at what level were the contacts for this  period. Regarding the meeting with Trump and Pompeo - we did not have  meetings with them today, but this did not lower the level of our  dialogue with the USA, in fact, he became even more active, "  Mnatsakanyan said.

As the head of the Armenian Foreign Ministry pointed out, it must be  borne in mind that the United States has a specific management system  with its own complex structure. "The meeting with Trump and Pompeo is  always on our agenda - at necessary time, then they will meet,"  concluded Zohrab Mnatsakanyan.

To recall, the Pashinyan-Trump meeting was scheduled for September  2018 on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly, but did not take  place due to the tight schedule of the leaders of the two countries.  In September 2019, Nikol Pashinyan's visit to the United States was  announced. For the time being, we only know that he meet with  representatives of the Armenian community in Los Angeles.
