Greece will soon ratify Comprehensive and Enhanced Partnership  Agreement between Armenia and the EU

ArmInfo. Greece will soon ratify the Comprehensive and Enhanced Partnership Agreement (CEPA) between Armenia and the European Union. This was announced on  November 5 at a meeting of the delegations of Armenia and Greece,  headed by the presidents of the two countries - Armen Sarkissian and  Prokopios Pavlopoulos.

According to the RA President's press service, welcoming the visit of  the Greek President and his delegation to Armenia, President Armen  Sarkissian referred to the previously discussed issues in a narrow  format. "I was pleased to hear that Greece will ratify the Armenia-EU  CEPA on in the near future. We agreed that our bilateral cooperation  in the political, economic, cultural, scientific and other fields is  very important," Armen Sarkissian said, also pointing out the  importance of using the Armenia-Greece-Cyprus platform. "In addition,  we can consider Greece as a gateway to the European Union, and vice  versa, Greece can consider Armenia as a gateway to the Eurasian  Union," Armen Sarkissian said. He praised the potential between the  two states, the implementation of which will bring bilateral  relations to a new level in all fields.

Noting that both nations have a historically established Diaspora,  the presidents of Armenia and Greece emphasized the importance of  cooperation in the Diaspora format. ''Being small states, both  countries have huge diasporas, and their cooperation in promoting  common national interests will be crucial in various parts of the  world. I completely agree with Mr. President that we should do  everything possible to deepen and plan cooperation between the  Armenian and Greek diasporas in various fields'', President  Sarkissian said.

The President of Greece stressed that he was ready to contribute to  deepening and strengthening bilateral relations. "Our two peoples and  countries have historically been obliged to cooperate, and we must  deepen this partnership in all areas," he said. The presidents also  considered important closer cooperation between the governments of  the two countries and parliaments, expressing their readiness to  support their efforts as much as possible. They also touched on  issues of cooperation within the framework of international  organizations.

Noting that the parliamentary administration system is new in  Armenia, President Sarkissian suggested discussing the possibility of  implementing cooperation programs between the presidential structures  of the two countries, in particular, the exchange of experience  between the presidential administrations, taking into account the  rich experience and traditions of the Greek parliamentary  administration. The President of Greece responded positively to this  proposal.
