ArmInfo.The government of Armenia, the parliamentary majority and many opposition forces are interested in relations with Germany. This was stated by the Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan during a discussion at the Friedrich Ebert Foundation on February 13.
The Prime Minister noted that over the past 1.5 years, the European Union has become Armenia's main partner in the reform agenda, pointing out the special role of Germany in this process.
<Since April 2018, Armenia has moved from a semi-presidential to a parliamentary system of government, and we see Germany as a country where the success of this system of government has been proven. It is very important for us to have the opportunity to study the experience of Germany, to see the system of balance and compromise that allowed us to establish an irreversible democracy with an independent judiciary, and also stimulated economic development and a competitive economy. In this regard, I consider our cooperation with Germany to be important, and I am very happy about this opportunity>, he said. The Prime Minister noted that the reform program was actually set out and described in the Agreement on Comprehensive and Enhanced Armenia-EU Partnership. <We will consistently carry out the reforms provided for in this agreement. Economic cooperation with the European Union is very important for us, and Armenia, as a member of the EAEU, attaches great importance to the establishment of economic and political cooperation between the EAEU and the EU. Last year, Armenia presided over the EAEU, and this was obviously a successful chairmanship. Armenia is a supporter of economic and political cooperation between the EAEU and the EU, and we will do our best to make this cooperation work. But I would also like to say that the Republic of Armenia is a good environment for foreign investment, including German and European investors who want to have unlimited access to the EAEU's 180 millionth market, "Pashinyan noted, emphasizing that the products manufactured in Armenia may be exported to the EAEU without customs clearance.
