Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s opening remarks during a meeting with Foreign Minister of the Republic of Armenia Zohrab Mnatsakanyan on the sidelines of the CIS Foreign Ministers Council meeting, Ashgabat, October 10, 2019
Today, we have the opportunity to hold a bilateral meeting on the sidelines of the meeting of the CIS Council of Foreign Ministers in Ashgabat and follow up on our efforts to implement the agreements reached by our leaders, President of Russia Vladimir Putin and Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan.
We have a very intensive dialogue going on both at the level of top officials and foreign ministers, as well as at the level of our respective foreign ministries’ employees, not to mention fairly intensive economic interaction.
Today, we will see what else needs to be done to make sure everything goes smoothly. This meeting is an excellent opportunity to discuss our interaction in international organisations, such as the OSCE, the Council of Europe, the UN and integration associations in the post-Soviet space.
I’m very pleased to see you.
